Sea spray, green olive, cheese rind, freshly cut grass and sage aromas. Palate richness expands: citrus oil, white stone fruits and honey. Intense, mineral and precise. Fine interplay between botanical, floral and fruit elements – chamomile, white blossom and meyer lemon. Lovely balance and fine length. Subtle leesy texture builds density. Brisk finishing acidity. Long star anise/lemongrass finish.
Beautiful, savory, focused wine with subtle depth and gradually evolving texture.

This wine has a very earthy/savory nose with notes of fallen leaves and moss over a core of lemon curd
and grapefruit peel. The medium-bodied palate has a wonderful intensity of citrus and earthy flavors
supported by lively acidity, finishing long with an herbal lift.
The 2014 Chardonnay Isobel Charles Heintz Vineyard has come together beautifully since I tasted it last year. There is lovely focus and precision here, especially for this site, which can tend towards the more opulent side of things. Medium in body and gracious, the 2014 possesses lovely aromatic presence and terrific balance, all in a delicate, understated style that offers tons of near and medium term appeal.

This year’s Isobel is a deep, yet somewhat unevolved and relatively nervy Chardonnay whose youth is
