This is a great chardonnay that I think will improve with age. Right now I get pear, smoke and lemon in the aromas and in the taste. Acid felt a little low but I was getting towards the end of the day in tasting.

Update: Had this on it's own paired with a creamy fettuccini alfredo with rosemary, basil chicken. This time I was truly impressed. Held up well to the creamy sauce and herb chicken. I know, it wasn't a stretch pairing but one that definitely worked well in my opinion. Glad I still have a bottle of this left.

I bought this on sale for $45. A bold but young chardonnay, a delightful basket of flavors with oak, oatmeal and pears. But wouldn't pay above $45 for it.

This is an utterly seductive and graceful Chardonnay. Complex nose displays an ethereal, perfectly balanced mix of tropical fruit, citrus oil, apricot, mineral water, and subtle toasty/leesy notes. Rich yet light as air, it caresses rather than assaults the palate, and its qualities linger on long after it's swallowed. Not quite as deep and long as the 2005 River Block, but an absolute joy to drink.

Probably one of the best California Chardonnay that I have tried. Classic aged chardonnay flavors with a bit of tannin and oak still apparent. Loved it.

Interesting California Chardonnay - not really for sipping. I would definitely pair this with a meal due to the nutty flavors on the palette. Smooth finish.

A textbook example in how to make a Chardonnay that's ripely fruity and oaky, yet maintains impeccable balance. The orange, apricot, green apple and lime flavors hit the jackpot, while brisk acidity and minerality provide equilibrium. Possesses that ... Wine Enthusiast.

Light gold. Aromas of orange poached pear ginger and toasty lees. Sweet and buttery on entry then nicely taut in the middle offering minerally orchard fruit and lemon curd flavors and a bright mineral nuance. Finishes chewy and tactile with lingering floral and spice notes and very good persistence. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

The 2006 Chardonnay River Block (Old Wente and Hanzell clones of Chardonnay) exhibits attractive notes of buttered citrus, wet rocks, lemon zest, orange blossom, peach, and subtle woodsmoke. It possesses superb ripeness, a rich, full-bodied mouthfeel, and excellent acidity. Enjoy it over the next 7-8 years.

Green-gold. Spicy pear, orange and gingerbread on the nose, with exotic Thai basil and smoky mineral qualities adding complexity. Fresh citrus and orchard fruit flavors are impressively precise, picking up smoky minerality with air. Finishes strong, ... Stephen Tanzer.
