2010 Paul Lato Hilliard Bruce Vineyard Belle de jour Santa Rita Hills
Chardonnay
Very tropical with a ton of pineapple, along with pear and apple, some brown spice, butterscotch and prevalent ginger spice.  Mild to moderate tannins and fairly crisp acidity.  Intensely flavored, nicely balanced and good length. Fruit is fairly forward but not over ripe.  Perhaps just a small bit of residual sugar.  Very nice wine.  N 9 P 8 B 9 S  8+ C 8 = 92+
