Pale yellow. Musky, powerfully scented aromas of orchard fruits, smoky lees, truffle and iodine; smells like a top-notch Chassagne. Weighty and round but sharply focused, offering fresh pear, peach, tangerine and buttered toast flavors. The iodine element returns on the long, smoky finish. Lots going on here, especially for the price.

Ripe and intense, with rich, perfumed apple, pear and spice flavors that pick up a note of butterscotch from oak. Turns elegant and stylish on the finish, showing a hint of lemon and citrus. A great value. Drink now through 2010.

From Edna Valley's oldest and coolest climate this elegant Chardonnay is complex, with smoky characteristics, tropical fruits and a lively acidity that dances on your tongue.

Smooth, rich and creamy-textured, this is intense and concentrated, with a mix of ripe pear, green apple, floral and spice notes. Ends with a fresh, snappy aftertaste. Drink now through 2010.

Brisk and ripe, this Chard, from a cool region on San Luis Obispo, shows a classic profile of pure kiwi and lime fruit flavor. A layer of oak adds caramel, butterscotch and vanilla flavors. It all finishes in a long, spicy swirl of orange blossom honey.

Fresh and vibrant, with floral apple blossom scents. Complex spicy mineral, green apple and green pear notes, with a hint of cedar, are clean and refreshing. Has good length, picking up a trace of anise on the finish. Drink now. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.

Bright and pure, with high natural acidity framing ripe flavors of peaches, pineapples, limes, kiwi fruits and smoky, oaky vanilla. Classic Edna Valley Chardonnay.

Winemaker's Notes:

Every year, every wine, has a story to tell and the tale of the 2009; extremely low yields from the Wolff Vineyard. We purchased the majority of the vineyard and the combination of vine age (30 plus years) and a three year drought gave us just over one ton per acre. Not so good for the grower; yet incredible concentration, tension and terrior-driven minerality in the fruit. True to form, aromas of grapefruit and guava, with oak and earth in the background and mouthwatering acidity is the first impression on the palate. Restrained flavors of pineapple, pear and honeysuckle are persistent with moderate richness. This is what Josh Reynolds of the International Wine Cellar has to say about this wine... Pale yellow. Musky, powerfully scented aromas of orchard fruits, smoky lees, truffle and iodine; smells like a top-notch Chassagne. Weighty and round but sharply focused, offering fresh pear, peach, tangerine and buttered toast flavors. The iodine element returns on the long, smoky finish. Lots going on here, especially for the price.
