Lobo 2020 Chardonnay Wulff
2020 Lobo Winery Chardonnay Wulff Vineyard Oak Knoll District, Napa Valley
San Francisco Wine Panel Score 95 Points
This dramatic Chardonnay has plenty to offer, as flinty minerality provides a gutsy backdrop for its forthcoming aromas of baked peach, baked apple, lemon, grapefruit, vanilla wafer, baking spice and mace. It offers a layering of fruit flavors and rich oaky spice in the mouth, where concentrated notes of nectarine tart, applesauce, lychee fruit, poached pear, lemon curd, fresh lime, vanilla wafer, honeyed nuts and toasted meringue create a lush harmony. The finish lingers elegantly, as fruit zest and flinty minerality bring a firming raciness to balance things at the end. It should grow even more opulent over the next year or two. 120 cases made.
