External Reviews for Clos Pegase Mitsuko's Vineyard Carneros Chardonnay
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.
Faintly musky, complex nose combines smoke, flint and fresh herbs. Fat, sweet, lush and generous, with nicely integrated ripe acids framing the lime and fresh herb flavors. Finishes with subtle length.

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.
