From a small typical restaurant white wine glass - Lightly oaky on the nose with a typically citrus/sweet chardonnay expression of fruit. There are notes of smoke, chalk and graham cracker that add interest but are rather aggressive. Big and rich in the mouth but a bit thick across the palate finishing with good green fruits. From Bottega del Vino's Chardonnay stem - more expressive oak tones reveal layered vanilla, light toast and hazelnut butter tones. The fruit here is more tropical with a custard edge and a nice blend of spiced, roasted pears and sauteed pineapple. In the mouth this is soft and expansive with a broad, elegant mouthfeel and better cut than from the smaller glass. The flavors are much the same though this is perhaps more citrus and tropical toned with a long pineapple syrup note on the finish. A definite improvement aromatically and texturally when using the Bottega del Vino stem. 88pts

Beautiful Chardonnay character comes through in this Chilean white that can compete with a California Chard any day. You'll find tropical fruit and butterscotch on the palate and a long, round finish.

Pretty pear, apple and piecrust notes on a creamy frame. Judicious toast on the finish lets the minerality come through. Nice length. Drink now. 15,000 cases made.

A ripe, showy style, with pear, fig and melon notes backed by alluring toast. Lively acidity keeps this honest through the lengthy, butter-tinged finish. Drink now.


Winemaker's Notes:

94 points Jay Miller (Wine Advocate): ...a world class Syrah... Inky black in color, it reveals a super-expressive nose of toasty new oak, pepper, lavender, game, incense, and blueberry. Voluptuous on the palate but not heavy, it has gobs of sweet fruit, layers of flavor, a firm structure, and 5-7 years of aging potential... 2015-2026. (Jun 2009)
