I am a chardonnay lover and ordered this at a business dinner and was VERY pleased. A very smooth chardonnay, it went with almost everything we ordered (all dishes were shared) and such a hit amongst our table of 6 that we ordered another bottle. Everyone loved it - it is not too buttery, but would best be described as a smooth, dry chardonnay with plenty of body but not too much bite.

This Chardonnay has the character of winemaker Hugh Chappell's former efforts at the Flowers Winery (and is "well-approved" by consulting winemaker Paul Hobbs). One-third each Wente, Chalk Hill and Dijon clones - "I never would have put these three together," says Chappell, "but it worked out so well" - it has wonderful aromatics of a panoply of tropical fruit and a combination of apple, pear and cr?me brul?e (it's almost like a liquid apple danish with buttery, flaky pastry). As in the best Puligny-Montrachets, it's crisply acidic and finishes with a mineral tang. Enjoy with chicken breast stuffed with tomato, spinach and feta; scampi off the grill; or a Cobb salad.

Wine Tasting NotesEach of the contributing vineyards has added a layer, and more than ever the sum is truly greater than the parts. Aromas are fresh and vibrant fragrant Bartlett pear and spicy applesauce go head to head with distinct notes of lemon custard and ripe mango. There is also a noticeable minerality which is much more upfront this vintage than in the past. Nuances of yeasty fresh rising dough are in the background, which we know will turn wonderfully "toasty" with a little more bottle age. Where this vintage really shines, though, is on the palate. The entry is deceptively soft with no hard edges. A remarkable flavor density is then apparent, seamlessly flowing into a rich mid-palate and bracing acidity. While this wine will drink great upon release, it will get even better over the next 12-18 months. We estimate excellent cellaring potential through at least 2009.
