The French Creek Vineyard is a cool site located in the Columbia Valley AVA, first planted more than 35 years ago. This begins with lively aromatics reminiscent of vanilla cream, butterscotch and nutmeg. The texture here is really good. Meyer lemon cream, butterscotch and brioche flavors come to mind. Nearly impossible to resist right now, this great wine is best enjoyed warmed up a bit, unlike many other Oregon Chardonnay bottlings.
