December 201596-100 The 2014 Chardonnay UV-SL may flirt with perfection when all is said and done. This dry-farmed vineyard, which had tiny yields in 2014 because of the drought, displays great intensity in its notes of lemon oil, wet rocks, honeysuckle, pineapple, and peach and apricot marmalade. Some brioche and caramelized apples also make an appearance in this full-throttle, full-bodied Chardonnay that must be close to 15.5% natural alcohol, although there’s not a trace of heat. Drink it over the next ten years.
February 201697 The 2014 Chardonnay UV-SL Vineyard is rich, phenolic and intense, with striking interplay of aromas, flavors and textures. Seamless and impeccably layered in the glass, the 2014 speaks to balance and finesse. Today, the UV-SL is creamy, unctuous and absolutely stunning in its beauty. Yields were just one ton per acre at UV-SL, the most coastal of the sites Mark Aubert works with.
