This wine has been tasted twice, including once back in 2008, with similar impressions. It is aging effortlessly. Rich and satisfying, this Chardonnay includes grapes from two excellent Sonoma vineyards: 61% Sangiocomo (Carneros), 39% Flocchini (Sonoma Coast). Intriguing nose with highlights of coconut, straw, spice, and tropical fruits. Full and long, yet soft in the mouth, with layers of fruit and subtle nut-like flavors. Purchased for $30 on sale at the winery in early 2010 - it's a deal at that price.

The limited production 2005 Chardonnay Damaris Reserve emerges from the Sangiacomo Vineyard in Carneros. More intense honeysuckle marmalade and tropical fruit characteristics are found in this wine's aromatics. Full and rich, with more smoky, Meursault-like nuttiness as well as attractive fullness are found in this beautiful Chardonnay. It should drink well for 2-3 years. Kudos to winemaker Eric Stern and proprietors Mike and Mary Calhoun for these reasonably priced, high quality white wines.

The 1998 Chardonnay Demaris is bolder, richer and smokier.

Very rich and ripe, this multicounty-sourced California Chardonnay reserve wakes up the taste buds with it s layers of fig, tangerine, cedary oak and spice, culminating in a long, complex aftertaste. Drink now through 2004.

Pale gold. Fresh honeydew and peach on the nose, with a bright mineral accent. Crisp and nervy, with impressively focused pit and citrus flavors enlivened by a stony quality. Clean, nervy and long, with a lingering note of citrus zest.

Bright yellow-gold. Exotic, perfumed bouquet of tangerine, peach, anise, shiso leaf, iodine and spicecake. Juicy, broad and impressively concentrated citrus, pear and melon flavors are framed by juicy acidity and turn smoky with air. Finishes with excellent cut and an echo of smoke and baking spices. An impressively balanced and sexy midweight.
