Light yellow.  Nose dominated by oak notes of char, vanilla and coconut.  Broad, tactile and quite dry; much less showy today than the basic Clos bottling, hinting at peach.  A bit easygoing on the attack, then the acidity makes itself known on the finish.  Finishes long and perfumed.  This will no doubt need longer in bottle than the classic Clos, as the oak is a bit aggressive today and needs time to harmonize with the wine's fruit.  The Pinsons have a following for this limited bottling, but I don't see the point of Clos in a high percentage of new oak.

While the origins of the grape were disputed for many years, with some speculating that the grape came all the way from the Middle East, DNA researchers at the University of California-Davis proved in 1999 that Chardonnay actually developed...
