2009 'Silhouette' Chardonnay, Napa Valley

The 2009 Chardonnay Silhouette comes across as vivid and beautifully articulated. Nothing really stands out here, just the wine’s terrific sense of balance and harmony. The integration of oak is exceptional, while the fruit avoids heaviness or excessive tropical notes. This is a gorgeous Chardonnay to drink now and over the next few years. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2014.

2009 'Silhouette' Chardonnay, Napa Valley

Pure, intense and vibrant, this displays citrus, lemon, honeysuckle and butterscotch notes woven together in a tight cocoon, but the flavors slowly unfold, with grace and dimension. Long, persistent finish. Best from 2013 through 2023.
