Livingston Moffett Genny's Vineyard Chardonnay 1999
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Carneros|
Ripe, rich and buttery, with layers of spicy fig, peach pit and caramel notes from toasty oak. Richness carries through the finish. Drink now through 2005. 800 cases made.
Very ripe tropical fruits and appealing pear, apple and spice notes show well in this nicely balanced wine. Good acidity plays a solid supporting role here. The toasty oak holds the almost overripe fruit in check-it's strong from the mid palate through the handsome butter-and-apple finish.
