Color: Bright yellow gold with hints of buttermilk and mercury. On the nose: Explosion of brioche, gingerbread and crème brûlée with touches of apricot, quince and tomato stems lingering on citrus, honey, soap and butterscotch. On the palate: Fresh entrance evolving on salted caramel with hints of butterscotch and citrus lingering on nutmeg, fresh pears and candied peaches.

Wine SpectatorRich without being weighty, offering a subtle presentation of green apple, melon, citrus and cedary nutmeg flavors, with the wood most prominent on the finish. Drink now. 2,600 cases made.

Wine AdvocateOf the two Chardonnays I tasted from Alpha Omega, I actually preferred the regular cuvee, the 2013 Chardonnay, more than the Reserve, largely because it is less oaky, has attractive honeysuckle and melony citrus-like fruit, medium body, and good balance and freshness. It should drink nicely for 3-4 years.
