NV Chardonnay XLB
Ahhh, there you are, follow me to a place where multifarious vintages of wine call home. A cellar as dark as the deepest of night; steeped in mystery, an oaken catacomb. Where the rarest of rare coalesce through the years, putting saffron by weight to shame. L’Incomparable sheathed in 24k liquid gold, trapped in barriques through long lonely years. Swirls of turmeric and safflower in fine crystal glass; like much in life, it's what’s on the inside that truly counts. Whole roasted hen basted with herbs and salted Kerrygold butter; Vatt 99 by addition, Joli Jonquil its name. As it drifts back in time, Meyer lemon zest falls, on the tongue without much further ado. Burnt sugar caramel flan and fresh croissants alike, I fear this wine will not be long for the world. So, grab ahold to a case in the short time you can, and do not be fooled by humble outward appearances alone; for back in the bottle this XLB wine will retreat to slumber out of reach and promised as its due. Here you have a golden elixir; a multifarious blend of manifold vintages of mellifluous Chardonnays ranging from 2006 to 2017 gathered from the Kruse, Cain, Abernathy, Conway and James Berry vineyards on the west side of Paso Robles.
