Pretty light straw color. A bright fruitiness gives a good first impression. Seemed well made with just enough balancing acidity. A fine chardonnay*. 89+pts.
* Made in the typical Cali oaky style. Pride has reduced the amount of new oak used, supposedly, since the 2004 vintage. And the oakiness seemed to me to be on a quiet reasonable level, relatively speaking. But it is still too oaky for my tastes. I don't know why Cali chard makers are nuts for the oak. I prefer a Kistler style chard, where you taste the wine and not the barrel.
