I had this as part of a Cakebread tasting with food pairing that I won! This was a wonderful chardonnay. It was toasty and smells like fresh butter. Lightly oaked, it was silky creamy smooth although it had a slightly bitter end. The sad part is that the food pairing of mango salsa salad was not that good. The red onion a little over powering and the tomatoes was too much acid that cut the smoothness. Otherwise, mango was a great idea!

Clean and refreshing, snappy and vibrant, with zesty citrus, fresh quince and green apple notes. Drink now through 2012.

Serves up an appealing mix of earthy citrus, ripe pear and green apple flavors that are well-focused and unobstructed by oak. Finishes with a rich, clean aftertaste. Drink now through 2009.

Give this fine Chard some time in the bottle to knit together. Tasted at about one year of age, it was a little disjointed, but the parts are quite good. The flavors of pineapples, Meyer lemons and golden mango need time to integrate with the butterscotchy, caramelly oak.

A crisp, flinty style, with peach, pear, anise and nectarine notes and little if any noticeable oak. Drink now through 2006.

Ripe and vibrant, with a mix of green apple, melon and pear fruit and a touch of light spicy oak. Still a bit raw, but bottle time will resolve that. Drink now through 2012.

Tight, with a vibrant core of earthy pear, citrus and cookie dough-scented oak. A lively, well-focused style that delivers a clean beam of fruit flavors. Drink now through 2007. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.

Clean and refreshing, with Key lime, Meyer lemon, green apple and spicy nuances, ending with a touch of toasty oak and a hint of lime peel. Drink now.

Winemaker's Notes:

Our 2010 Napa Valley Chardonnay boasts an attractive light golden-straw color and fresh, lightly buttery, ripe golden apple, pear and citrus aromas, complemented by seductive vanilla and cinnamon/nutmeg scents from oak aging and subtle yeast tones from lees contact. Lush, concentrated and creamy on the palate, its ripe apple, melon, bright citrus and baking spice flavors culminate in a long, beautifully structured finish boasting crisp acidity and zesty mineral and spice tones. Sumptuous, yet refreshing, our 2010 Chardonnay is delicious now, but will handsomely reward another 3-5 years' bottle aging.
