Oak laced nose with some hints of ginger, hazelnut and lemon zest. Aromas of sweet anjou pear and green apple. Nice crisp acidity up front. Some tropical fruit tones with green apple and sweet pear. Slightest suggestion of nuts. Nicely layered and good integration of flavors. Retains a lovely crispness throughout. Tasty! 2/14/12

Even better is the outstanding 2009 Chardonnay Sonoma Coast, a blend of two-thirds barrel fermented and barrel aged with some aged in stainless steel tanks with wooden staves and the rest totally in stainless steel, all of which was put through malolactic fermentation. The idea of blending steel fermented juice with barrel fermented wines seems to have produced a freshness and vibrancy. Bright with notes of orange blossoms, spring flowers, honeysuckle and white peaches, this floral-styled, medium to full-bodied effort will please those looking for Chardonnays with less than 14% alcohol (this offering has 13.8%). Enjoy it over the next 1–2 years.

Smooth and fruity, this is a touch sweet, with juicy apple, melon and pear flavors that are clean and easy-drinking. Drink now.

The Macmurray Chardonnay has a rich mouthfeel with sweet aromatics. Restrained oak contact brings caramel and vanilla flavors, but the emphasis is on elegant ripe fruit with tropical and lemon cream notes.

The only Chardonnay I tasted, the 2008 Sonoma Coast, had not been bottled, but it was very promising. It reveals plenty of brioche, poached pear, honeysuckle, and smoky hazelnut notes, a leesy, waxy complexity, a light gold color, and a rich, medium to full-bodied personality. It has the potential to be outstanding when released.

The 2008 Chardonnay Sonoma Coast possesses classic tropical fruit notes of mangos and pineapples as well as good freshness and a medium-bodied, fruit-driven style with the oak pushed well to the background. Drink it over the next 1-2 years.

Rich, sweet flavors of fig, honeydew melon and spice are complex and layered, turning soft and fleshy. Drink now.
