Lewis 2006 Chardonnay Oakville District

Lewis Chardonnays can unusually be counted on for richness, highly extracted fruit and flamboyant oak, and in 2006 we are pleased to report there are no surprises. Dense but open and easy to access in the nose and very full and fleshy in feel, it is an extravagant, show-stopping wine whose pulpy, long-lasting char-acter exhibits extraordinary richness from front to back. This wine is rich, ripe and thickly textured, with pear and stone-fruit flavors that turn creamy on the palate with a broad, round finish and a hint of cinnamon. [+]
