Bob Cabral’s Chardonnays sometimes get lost in the brilliant glare of his Pinot Noirs, but he has spent years exploring the rich, flamboyant side of the variety, with great success. This bottling represents William Selyem Chardonnay at its best. It’s ultra-decadent in apricot and pear flavors, with a strong oak influence, and yet an underlying minerality and fine acidity balance it so that it doesn’t tire as you drink. In fact, you want more.
The 2008 Chardonnay Heintz Vineyard, an iconic site used by several of the top Chardonnay specialists in Northern California, displays more orange rind, creme brulee, roasted hazelnuts and smokier notes than the Allen. (RP)
Yellow-gold. Powerful aromas of peach nectar, orange marmalade, spices and honey; broader and more exotic than the Allen, with lush, creamy texture and serious heft. This has good power and depth, and finishes on an exotic note of mango. It also needs rich food. (ST)
