The nose and the palate show generous amounts of citrus, with lemon custard being the most apparent. The palate is very rich and intense with the characteristic briny quality that the winery typically expects from Los Alamos. The richness of this wine is balanced by its mouthwatering acidity and a touch of new oak. Overall, this is one of Chanin's most classic Los Alamos Chardonnays.
Clean Asian pear, wet gravel and lime peel aromas show on the tightly wound nose of this bottling. The palate is quite delicate at first, offering lightly seared white peach, chalk and lime zest notes, but grows increasingly savory and delicious as it opens, indicating great cellar potential. Drink 2018–2030. Cellar Selection
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2015 Chardonnay Los Alamos Vineyard opens with pronounced lemon curd, grapefruit and fresh ginger notes with hints of crushed nuts and baking bread. Medium-bodied, elegantly crafted and with a lively backbone to lift the delicate citrus and spice flavors, it has a lovely creamy suggestion and good length.
