Review:

Mo created another winner with his 2012 Chardonnay, adding an extra dimension of weight and richness. Like all of his 2012s, it is very limited in supply and highly recommended.

"The 2012 Ayoub Chardonnay features a beautifully complex nose of Bosc pear, lemon zest, baked apple, orange blossom and wet slate. On the palate, the wine is all about balance and thrilling complex flavors from start to finish. It has a medley of lemon meringue, almond, pie crust, honey comb which is highlighted by bright juicy acidity and flinty minerality. The mouthwatering finish lingers endlessly." - Mo

Previous vintage notes: Mo Ayoub has been bragging about this 2011 Chardonnay for a year, and he was right to! This is Oregon-style Chardonnay: rich with fruit and texture, vibrant with acidity, devoid of clunky, buttery oak. The perfect balance of sweet pear and apple meshes seamlessly with mouthwatering Meyer lemon, adding hints of jasmine. The finish lasts forever. Only 129 cases were made. Very limited, and highly recommended. - Marcus

2010 Vintage

2010 Wine Spectator - 93 points - Vibrant and striking, with complex pear, passion fruit, pepper and wet stone aromas and flavors that fit neatly into a compact, focused package. This has style and grace, with a great finish. Drink now through 2016. - H.S.

2009 Vintage Tasting Notes

Wine Spectator 94 points and "Hot Wine" -

Silky, satiny, elegant and appealing for its superb balance. A light-bodied style that brims with flavor, offering pear, apple, quince and butter cookie notes that mingle enticingly on the long, expressive finish. This one can age. Drink now through 2016. From Oregon. - H.S.

More from Wine Spectator on Ayoub:

"Ayoub is everything those of us want if we prize small, hands-on winegrowers who focus on one special place."
