Ripe apple and pear varietal character highlighted with typical Carneros traits of tropical fruit and rich citrus. The palate is broad with creamy vanilla, complex fruit, and a long, juicy finish.

Bright, rich, focused, with ripe fig, lemon, pear, apricot and spice, turning even more complex, with layers of flavors on the finish. Best from 2000 through 2005. A new label from sparkling wine producer Codorníu Napa.

The 1999 Carneros Chardonnay exhibits a medium straw color, attractive tropical fruit characteristics, subtle oak, medium body, and a clean, crisp finish. It should drink well for another year.

Offers lots of ripe, rich fruit flavors built around pear, fig and apricot. Teeters on sweet. But fans of fruit-driven, exotic tropical flavors will find this fits the bill. Drink now.

Fragrant floral, green apple and pear flavors are delicate and spicy. Medium- to full-bodied, sleek and focused, with a long, persistent finish that keeps fruit purity at the center. Drink now through 2012.

Classic Carneros Chard. Aromas of apples and peaches veering into tropical fruit lead to bright, well-etched fruity flavors in the mouth. Spices, too, and smoky vanilla from oak. Malolactic fermentation and lees aging create a round, creamy feel, and the finish is spicy and smooth.
