Tasting Notes: With an involving mix of sweet cream and toast leading the way and quickly followed by appley nuances and accents of caramel as its rich, nicely-aged aromas gradually unfold, the 2009 J. Schram is every bit as rich and far-ranging as promised once in the mouth. If not bright and brisk, its complex, fully-autolyzed flavors are not close to being tired, and the wine, in fact, evokes a degree of vigor that belies its years. Its many parts have come together in an integral and altogether compelling whole, and, while an absolute delight to drink in the immediate term, this one will continue to satisfy for a good many more years. 97 Points/Cellar Selection/Best of Year 2018/#30 Top 100 Cellar Selection Wines for 2018, Wine Enthusiast 94 Points, Connoisseurs’ Guide to California Wine, December 2018 Final Blend: 86% Chardonnay, 14% Pinot Noir Hold Time: Enjoy now or hold up to 7 years Alcohol by Volume: 13.3% Cheers to another wine club selection featuring Schramsberg!
