Unimpressive nose of apple and straw. Nice balance of apple,pear,citrus and hint of oak followed by a crisp finish. A very nice wine with smoked salmon, crackers & cheese, or just by itself.

I really like this wine for the balance. It is nice fruit of apple and tropical notes typical of the climate. It demonstrates a restrained use of oak but you can tell it is there and the malo doesn't leave it feeling flabby....in fact there is some nice acidity. This is a good example of when medium isn't bad. With Chardonnay, for me, more isn't always better.

This is a well-made, mid-weight Chardonnay with hints of orange zest, hazelnut, and some white currants in a medium-bodied, fresh, lively style with a subtle influence of wood. Drink it over the next year.

Made in an immediately appealing, oaky way, this Chard has appealing peach, pear, green apple and honey flavors that tastes like they were baked into a pie. Easy to find, with more than a million bottles in circulation.

Polished and sophisticated, with lush green apple, pineapple, buttered toast and cinnamon flavors. Likeable for its balance and sheer drinkability.

A racy white, with ripe, lively pear, citrus, honeydew melon and hints of clove and nutmeg. Well-focused on the fruit, which it keeps at the forefront. Drink now through 2008.

Ripe, floral, peachy Chardonnay flavors are clean, delicate and full-bodied, but not heavy, ending with a subtle touch of oak. Drink now through 2014.

Rich in well-ripened fruit flavors and with a sweet coat of smoky oak and vanilla, this Chard also has a structural integrity based on crispness and vitality. It's not a soft, creamy Chard, but a firm one, with exotic fruit.

The 2009 Chardonnay also pushes its wood component well to the background, emphasizing white peach, honeysuckle and white citrus characteristics offered in a crisp, clean, medium-bodied style. Enjoy it over the next 1-2 years.
