Merryvale

Our 2010 Chardonnay Carneros displays expressive aromas of pear, papaya, citrus, nectarine, pineapple, toasty oak and spice. The wine is medium weight with a round fleshy texture and a crisp sweet finish.

Wine Enthusiast

This is a good followup to Merryvale’s 2009. While it was barrel fermented in nearly half new French oak, it never feels overly manipulated or fussy. Marked by crisp acidity and Carneros minerality, it’s an elegant, clean wine, with subtle Meyer lemon, lime and Asian pear flavors.

Score: 90. —Steve Heimoff, July 01, 2012.

Wine Spectator

Tight, with taut citrus, green pear, honeysuckle and spice notes that are slow to unfold. Most interesting on the finish, where creamy oak adds a nice touch. Drink now through 2018. 2,362 cases made.

Score: 88. —James Laube, July 31, 2012.
