Appealing for its pure flavors, with intense ripe pear, citrus, earth and nutmeg shadings, it's vibrant and crisp, with lively acidity and a long, complex finish that keeps echoing rich fruit flavors. Needs time. Best from 2005 through 2010.

Beautifully crafted, sleek, rich and refined, with a tight, elegant beam of spicy pear, citrus, honey and fresh, clean earth. Tapered on the finish, where flavors are long and detailed. Nary a trace of oak in the classy, streamlined debut from the California-based Hyde family and their relatives, the de Villaines of Burgundy.

Made from the Hyde Vineyard, (although it's not designated on the front label), this is as good as Carneros gets. It's soft and opulently layered, offering waves of pineapple, mango, guava, nectarine, peach and new oak flavors in a rich, creamy-leesy texture. The warmth of the vintage worked for this Chardonnay, keeping the Carneros fog away and elevating the wine to perfect ripeness.

Pale yellow. Aromas of pineapple, lime, toasted grain, smoke and dried nuts; turned increasingly stony and Chassagne-like with aeration. Concentrated and sweet but dry and delicate, with tightly wound flavors of lime, spice, oatmeal and earth. At once dense and lacy, with terrific verve for California chardonnay. Finishes spicy, dry and long.

A brilliant effort. Intense, deep and concentrated, with pure, sharply focused fruit that reverberates with flavor, offering tiers of fresh-cut apple, pear and citrus flavors that are crisp and lively. Has the richness and density to age a decade. Drink now through 2010.

Bright, pale yellow. Leesy, deeply pitched aromas of fruit cocktail, earth and minerals, complicated by toffee, clove and tropical fruit nuances. Rich and silky in the mouth, with an exotic high-toned quality and a fatter texture than the de la Guerra bottling. This is sweeter, fuller and more pliant chardonnay, with a deeper pitch to its flavors. Finishes with very good breadth and length, as well a a mineral firmness.

Tight and focused, delivering a beam of lime, citrus and green apple fruit that's crisp and lively, gaining depth and a minerally nuance on the long finish. Drink now through 2012.

Winemaker's Notes:

This is a dense, well balanced and complex wine. This Chardonnay shows layers of stone fruit and mineral character with peach, citrusy and honeysuckle notes. The wine knows how to retain flavors with a structured acid backbone and a lingering, refined finish. The 2004 HdV Chardonnay will improve for another five to eight years. May be paired with monkfish, scallops, sea bass, lobster or chicken.
