“Displays poise and elegance… Dilemma never disappoints.”
90 points ~Peter Vetsch, Pop n Pour
100% estate-grown Chardonnay from Margaret's Bench.
9 months sur lie aging in a combination of new (28%) and used (52%) French oak barrels, and stainless steel cask (20%).
With a beautifully inviting bouquet of brioche, nougat, and a honeyed flower, Dilemma is round and lush while maintaining a balance of ripe fruit. Culmina's terroir comes through, adding a complex nuance of leavening bread. The palate is filled with apricot and ripe orange mixed in with classic vanilla bean and warm butter to create a long and juicy finish.
