2009 Seven of Hearts Crawford Beck Vineyard Chardonnay Eola-Amity Hills

Wine Enthusiast, August 2011. By: Paul Gregutt. An elegant, compelling Chardonnay, its fruit accented with lemon, honey and lime. Low cropping of Dijon clone 76 has concentrated the flavors (and the alcohol – a surprising 15.7%) without turning the wine into an overblown fat boy. Nuanced and long, it is one of the most satisfying Chardonnays to come out of Oregon in recent memory
