Light gold color, unfiltered and pure. A natural, untampered expression of Russian River fruit andmdash; super clean with apple, hints of tarragon and ripe pear. Silky texture, very pleasing mouthfeel with lush, juicy fruits. Balanced with just a touch of oak on the finish. Excellent quality.

Yellow-gold. Leesy, smoky peach and pear on the nose, with hints of tarragon and toffee (about 15% of the grapes here were botrytized). Medium-bodied and sweet, with ripe orchard fruit flavors and soft acidity. A light baking spice note comes up on the finish. Dehlinger thinks that this is in its prime and notes that andldquo;most California chardonnay is best in its first five years.andrdquo;

One of the finest whites this estate has yet produced is the 2004 Chardonnay Estate (2,200 cases). Its light green/gold color is accompanied by attractive orange and lemon blossom, crushed rock, white currant, and spring flower characteristics. Full-bodied and rich with wonderful acidity (even though it was put through full malolactic), it keeps its fruit and minerality in the foreground, and the oak component (25% new is used) is well-concealed by the intense flavors. This beauty should drink nicely for 3andndash;4 years or longer.

Tight, with a crisp, well-focused band of ripe pear, apple, citrus and mineral, the flavors fan out on the aftertaste, where they show more depth and complexity. Drink now through 2002.

The unfiltered, steely, Chablis-like 2000 Chardonnay Estate possesses excellent citrus and liquid mineral notes, medium body, subtle oak, and loads of fruit. Crisp and refreshing, it will drink well during its first 2ndash;3 years of life.

This is one of those wines we can get for some odd reason - the winery likes us. Enjoy this intense wine and be happy the price is still so reasonable.
