Arns 2018 Chardonnay
2018 Arns Winery Chardonnay Searby Vineyard Sonoma Coast
San Francisco Wine Panel Score 94+ Points
Elegantly rich and almost textbook “Sonoma Coast” Chardonnay, this lovely wine offers aromas of lemon sorbet, pineapple core and fresh Fuji applesauce married to sweet-savory scents of toasted meringue, nutmeg, hazelnut nougat and vanilla wafer. It is both zesty and luxuriously creamy on the palate, where an underlying tension counterpoints lingering flavors of pineapple souffle, tarte tatin, fresh applesauce, Meyer lemon sorbet, nutmeg, nougat and honey-drenched nuts. It deserves service with classically-sauced entrees and should get even better over the next two years.
