2007 Tobin James Chardonnay Radiance

Paired nicely with sushi tonight, nice hints of nectar and citrus on the nose.  Mango, peach, apricot, kiwi, and lime, with a bit of lemongrass as well.  On the palate, this was crisp and refreshing with nice acidity and just a touch of oak.  More citrus on the palate with some passion fruit and pear.  Paired nicely with sushi with some nice oak, but not overly oaked.  Nothing at all old world about this wine, but it worked well with the sushi.  Crisp short finish, and just a joy to drink.  87 points.
