Clos Pegase Chardonnay Carneros Mitsuko's Vineyard 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2008 Chardonnay is a wine of great intensity, yet with elegance and balance. On the nose peach, pears, nectarine and other stone fruit dominate with a hint of lemon zest and smoky oak giving depth and intensity. The palate is supple, lively and vibrant and leads to a long, rich finish.

Clos Pegase:
Clos Pegase is a celebration of the ancient marriage of wine and art.

Ripe, with rich, lively pear, ginger, hazelnut and honeydew melon flavors, itrsquo;s an easy-drinking, complex style thatrsquo;s appealing.

A lovely Chardonnay to drink tonight, this one, from the wineryrsquo;s fine Carneros vineyard on the Napa side, shows bright, mineral-infused pineapple, lime and spicy clove and pepper flavors. The acidity will balance a rich dish, such as seared scallops in a coconut-curry sauce.

A well-made earthy, oaky wine with a funky, toasty nose, medium green-apple flavors and a spicy, toasty finish. It delivers all this, but it doesnrsquo;t quite go the extra mile. Consequently it suffers from being too moderate overall.

Fresh and vibrant, with ripe peach, nectarine and pear notes that are crisp and mouthwatering. Drink now.

Bright yellow-gold color. Full-blown aromas of apricot and peach compote. Fat, round and sweet, with pineapple and honey flavors. In a rather oily, unrestrained style.

Fresh, snappy and vibrant, with ripe pear, melon and citrus notes that are pure and focused. Ends with a fresh, fruity aftertaste. Drink now.

A beautiful Chardonnay with powerful tropical fruit, lime, nectarine, apricot and new oak flavors. Firmer acidity than you usually get from Carneros. This is a sleek, elegant wine, with a bracing streak of steely minerality. Kudos to owner Jan Shrem for putting it into a screwcap.
