Marcassin, Three Sisters Vyd., Chardonnay, Sonoma Coast 2005

Bright yellow.

Low-key aromas of lemon oil/lemon zest, fresh herbs, earth and toasted nut.

Extremely dense (Tanzer's"solid") in the mouth. Lemon, sulfide/mineral and caramel flavors. Mineral/sulfide/acid synergy gives a nice edge to the onslaught of richness. Mouthwatering balance - leaves no sense of weight. Just an incredibly long finish of lemon, caramel, iodine and mineral/sulfide "chew". Tasted barely chilled. As usual, it's hard to stop drinking this stuff. FK.

$75. 14.4% alcohol listed.
