I enjoyed this wine (brought from my cellar) this evening with a lot of quality raw fish (unfortunately all their yellowtail rolls were cooked fish, but they had a LOT of sea bass sashimi to distribute in platters and salad arangements
) at the King David Citadel Hotel today, and I finally was able to find your tasting note from December (http://stratsplace.zeroforum.com/zerothread?id=15752
Ella Valley Vineyards, Chardonnay, Vineyard's Choice, 2005: Reflecting its 11 months in oak with gentle vanilla, buttery and spice notes, this sparkling clear golden straw colored wine shows a complex and concentrated array of green pineapple, citrus and ripe pear fruits all leading to a long and generous finish. Full-bodied and still perhaps a bit coarse but everything you want is here in perfect order and all that is needed for this one to show its elegance is a bit more time in the bottle. Approachable now but best 2009-2012. Score 92. K (Tasted 2 Dec 2007)
Do you happen to have a more recent tasting of this? Thanks much in advance.
