A bright straw yellow in the glass, the wine offers a delightful range of aromas ranging from tropical mango to floral honeysuckle and apricot. Additional citrus notes of orange and lemon are followed by hints of thyme and cardamom and a finish of caramel and custard. A bright acidity and delicate minerality add structure while sweet vanilla oak nuances give suppleness to the wine. This Chardonnay is a clear expression of the great potential of the varietal in the Carneros region.

This is an enomoursly rich Chardonnay that positively explodes in apricot jam, pineapple, vanilla custard and butterscotch flavors. It's balanced with crisp, cool-climate Carneros acidity that makes it tangy and clean. Easy to find, with 33,000 cases produced.

Alluring for its creamy texture and complex mix of vanilla, orange blossom, spice and tangerine flavors. Full-bodied, spicy and elegant. Drink now through 2014.

Heavy toast from the barrels dominates this wine's lean fruit. For those who like oak-influenced Chardonnay, this is a wine to serve with grilled shark.

Artesa's dual fermentation approach, in which oak-barrel and stainless-steel-tank fermentation are used, has resulted in this startlingly appealing Chardonnay. Braced with Carneros acidity, it shows mineral-infused orange, lemon and mango flavors, with a smooth coating of toasty oak.

A beautifully elegant, refined Chardonnay. Because itrsquo;s not overloaded with oak, it displays the basic finesse of the grapes from this cool-climate vineyard. Crisp and dry, itrsquo;s rich and complex in citrus, tropical fruit, peach, mineral and honeysuckle flavors, at a fair price.

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes 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.
