Tasting Note                         

91   2012  Walter Hansel  Cahill Chardonnay (Russian River Valley)   7/17/15  ($40)

Color: Bright deep gold. (3.5) Bouquet: Pretty pear with some lime and butter flavors, also slight herb. (3.0) Body: Heavyweight with excellent fruit and acidity. Rich, tangy mouthfeel. (3.0) Flavor: More expressive and delicious than the bouquet. (3.5) Finish: Slight bitterness from alcohol, but still long and tasty. (3.0)
Overall: Very tasty, well made RRV Chardonnay. Does show a little bitterness that could smooth with a few years bottle age. (16)
