A luminous golden straw color to this beautiful wine. A bit smoky with aromas of apricot and sweet bake shop. Maybe wild flowers on a spring day. Medium - full on the palette with crisp acidity. Displaying peach and strawberry with a hint of minerals. Fresh finish that leaves you wanting more.

Savory yet sweet vanilla nose. Clean with a touch of sugar, fruit flavors of apples and pears. The toast is profound, like freshly buttered brunch bread.

Absolutely stunning and beyond drinkable. Golden, deep, precious color; highly memorable nose with notes of octane, chestnut, autumn leaves. Very rich. Very complex. Very worth it.

The 2009 Chardonnay Estate is incomparably elegant. Lemon, lime, crushed rocks, spices and mint are some of the many nuances that take shape as the 2009 opens up in the glass. The 2009 is unusually open and approachable for a young Mount Eden Chardonnay, but there is plenty of stuffing for it to age well for many years. The 2009 will be even better in another few years. Anticipated maturity: 2012–2020.

This pioneering California winery can trace its roots to the 1940s, when Martin Ray planted a vineyard in the Santa Cruz Mountains high above the Santa Clara Valley. Winemaker and partner Jeffrey Patterson carries on the tradition, tending this remote vineyard that is dry-framed and low-yielding. The juice was barrel-fermented in mostly new French Burgundy barrels (228 liters), where the wine went through full malolactic fermentation and was aged on the lees for 10 months. 1,74 cases made.

At first, this teases, fresh and snappy, displaying lively acidity and zesty citrus, green apple and pear notes. Turns pithy midpalate, but the flavors pour though on the finish, adding mouthwatering touches of light oak and mineral. Should only get better. Drink now through 2025.

Notes of white currants, lemon butter, poached pear, as well as touches of honey and crushed rock are all present in the complex aromatics of the light greenish/gold-colored 2007 Chardonnay Estate. A beautiful, full-bodied, textured mouthfeel with great freshness and brilliant purity is evidence of another stunner from this iconic source of high-elevation California Chardonnay. This is probably my favorite vintage over the last decade and has at least 10 years of aging potential.
