A year and a half ago, this was in a dumb phase. It woke up. I’m thinking it’s at the start of a drinking window.
2011 Ceritas Chardonnay Peter Martin Ray - USA, California, San Francisco Bay, Santa Cruz Mountains (5/27/2018)
Clear gold color. Really nice secondary aromas complimenting the fruit- hazelnut, beeswax, crushed stone, acacia, eastern spices and lime zest. Zesty fruit intensity on the attack wrapped in elegant secondary layers- fantastic flavor development. Silky palate density, with integrated acid and fine fleshy structure. Finishes with full notes of white pepper, minerals and citrus. Fantastic- this has really woken up in the year and a half since my last bottle. (94 pts.)
