Very good oaked chardonnay, with more balance than most at this price. Straw in color. Aromas of toast, some apple. On the palate, apples, perhaps some pear, with vanilla and a hazelnutty edge. Good finish.

Bright and appealing for its pear and apple fruit. Finishes with a touch of spice and floral character. The texture expand nicely as the flavors go on and on. Drink now through 2004.

Savory and deep, this rich chardonnay leads with aromas of caramel and sour apple. Its savory flavors of toast and dried pear lead through a long, caramel-scented finish. Well made in an oak-driven style.

Lively, generous, round and spicy, with nectarine, grapefruit and hints of caramel as the flavors linger appealingly. Drink now through 2009.

Big, oaky and extremely bright, with refreshing acids and crisply-defined fruit. As is usually the case with this spectacular vineyard, the flavors carry extra intensity; they seem to drill down into the heart of the palate. Though released young, this is a wine that could certainly benefit from another 6-12 months in the bottle.

Complex, leesy aromas of smoke and baking spices. Rounder and fatter than the Indian Wells example, with enticing peach, pear and spice flavors. This offers very good depth of fruit, and here the spicy oak element serves to frame, rather than overshadow, the winersquo;s fruit.

Lithe, spicy and generous with its pineapple-centered flavors, offering hints of pear and apricot as the finish lingers enticingly. Drink now.
