SKU: 2012 Okapi Chardonnay

This wine presents aromas of rich French pastries and fresh picked apples and figs, spiced with hints of exotic lychee and wildflower honey. On the palate the mouthfeel is expansive and vibrant, with subtly layered flavors of mandarin orange, hazelnut, lemon, creme fraiche and a lively minerality that lingers in the energetic finish. Only 155 cases were made.

I saved bottles of Chardonnay for several months following my attending a wine show on Fillmore Street here in San Francisco, I opened my first bottle and was very pleased with its complicated, pleasant, and yet delicate flavors. I'n not hooked up with all of the terms currently used to describe wines but this one was a winner at a dinner party over the holidays. What is your price for a case of this wine delivered to SF? You might want to consider using a rating like 87 to 94 range and I'd then call it in at around 91 or 92
