According to Robert Parker: The top value is the excellent 2008 Chardonnay Overlook, 75% of which is accessed from Sonoma and 25% from Santa Barbara. Its medium straw/green color is followed by notes of poached pears, cloves, white currants, and nectarines, pure fruit, medium to full body, and a good finish. It should drink well for 2-3 years. Winemaker Eric Stern judiciously uses wood as a complementary seasoning, which is evident in all these Chardonnays.

One of Californiarsquo;s finest as well as realistically priced Chardonnays is Landmarkrsquo;s Overlook. The 2006 (77% from Sonoma, 14% from Santa Barbara, and 9% from Monterey) exhibits classic tropical fruit, orange blossom, and citrus oil aromas along with a subtle whiff of oak in its fragrant, pure bouquet. Excellent acidity, a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, and a stunningly long finish result in a beautiful Chardonnay to enjoy over the next several years.

The 2003 Chardonnay Overlook (only 12,000 cases produced because of lower yields) exhibits a greenish hue to its light straw color along with a big, sweet bouquet of tangerines, peaches, subtle smoke, and background toast. Possessing opulence, richness, elegance, and definition, it will drink well for 1ndash;3 years.

A reliable winery with a realistic pricing policy, one of Californiarsquo;s finest Chardonnays for the money is Landmarkrsquo;s Chardonnay Overlook. The 2005 (74% Sonoma, 16% Santa Barbara, and 10% Monterey fruit) exhibits a light green/straw color as well as attractive aromas of honeyed citrus, tropical fruits, and spices. Excellent acidity, a lovely texture and mouthfeel, and medium body suggest this complex Chardonnay will drink well for several years. It represents a hypothetical blend of a classic white Burgundy and a California Chardonnay.

Bright gold. Spicy melon, peach and orange aromas are complicated by smoked meat and floral honey. Leesy melon and pit fruit flavors are energized by zesty minerality, which adds focus and lift. This understated chardonnay offers a lightly sweet touch and finishes with excellent cut persistence. There are almost 250,000 bottles of this in 2006.

One of Californiarsquo;s best values in complex, Burgundian-styled Chardonnay is Landmarkrsquo;s Overlook. The 2002 Chardonnay Overlook offers abundant aromas of tropical friut and lemon butter, a hint of orange marmalade, good underlying acidity, and plenty of character. Enjoy this elegant, medium to full-bodied, pure Chardonnay over next few years.

Winemaker's Notes:

Each lot is lightly whole cluster pressed, allowed to settle for a day and placed into 100% French oak where it spontaneously ferments without the addition of cultured yeast. The barrels are stirred twice a month to round out the wine and build texture.
