92 Point Wine Enthusiast : This is easily teh richest, densest, most complex of Marimar's 2007 Chardonnays. Made with extended lees contact, it has a fleshy, yeasty freshness that gives the wine extra layers. The grape flavors show typical Green Valley long hangtime notes of exotic tropical fruits, apricots, pears, honey, buttered toast, creme brulee and sweet baking spices, brightened with acidity. A luxurious, splendid Chardonnay to drink now.
This is a special bottling, with a complex nose of tapioca pudding and dried apricots — it goes on and on, unveiling layers of aromas, some floral notes and a touch of toasty oak. The palate echoes these sensations, plus notes of cinnamon and spice. A classic Dobles Lías, round and creamy, very pleasurable right now but with a long life ahead.
