WS gave this 90 pts. I didn't enjoy the Napa too much, but the Carneros was a nice, rich example of nectarine, tangerine and pear. Nice acidity. Clean yet lingering finish.

Wine Tasting NotesPale yellow-gold color. Bright citrus, grapefruit and green apple aromas. On the palate, the wine reveals ripe apple-peach fruit flavors balanced by a creamy, round texture and firm acidity on the finish. Medium full-bodied, with distinctive nutty-mineral flavors. Delightful on its own, or with chicken or fish dishes.

A rich, complex beam of apple, fig, pear, apricot and peach flavors, holding its fruit complexity on a long, tasty finish. A terrific value. Drink now.

There's a lot of Chard character here, in the flavors of peaches, pears, Asian spices, buttery toast and cream. A large proportion of the grapes came from Monterey, which also helps explain the crispness.

Lemony-spicy flavors, bold and bright, in a nice, easy-drinking wine with lots

This lemony wine boasts modest citrus aromas and flavors coupled with sharp acidity. It has some pretty oak and spice notes.

Light, brilliant metallic green-gold color. Very fresh aromas of Granny Smith apples and clear citrus, with a touch of herbs. Medium body. Cool, herb and apple flavors with a touch of lime blossom show fine vitality matched with a good supple mouthfeel. The wine has fine medium weight, with lightly buttery finish; clean and inviting. An excellent aperitif or seafood wine.

Crisp and juicy, with straightforward lemon and green apple fruit and mineral accents.

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Spectator Review Rated 90 SMART BUY Shows ripe, complex and well-defined nectarine, tangerine and spicy pear flavors, gaining depth and richness on the wonderfully long finish. Drink now through 2012. Wine Tasting Notes Made entirely from fruit grown at our estate vineyard, the Chardonnay is an extremely fine and delicate wine with aromas of stone fruit and brioche. Ten months of sur lie aging in 100 percent French oak barrels gives texture and imparts complex aromas of stone fruits, vanilla and hazelnut. As is typical of Chalone Vineyard Chardonnay, the acidity is firm and bright and the wine possesses gobs of minerality from our unique limestone site, making this an age-worthy Chardonnay. I like to call Chalone Vineyard Chardonnay the white wine for red wine drinkers. Its rich flavors, distinctive minerality and crisp acidity make it a versatile wine to complement rich, robust dishes such as pasta in cream sauces, roasted salmon, grilled chicken breast and pork chops.
