Deep straw cast. Moderately full-bodied. Balanced acidity. Moderately extracted. Mildly oaked. Yeast, cream, smoke. Aromatic and full with a ripe, smoky quality throughout. Showing both complexity and richness, with a generous lengthy finish.

Our 2009 Chardonnay is rich, concentrated and structured. The aromas and flavors feature white peach, golden delicious apples, vanilla and crème brûlée. The palate is rich and concentrated with spice and toasted oak while fine natural acidity keeps the wine in balance. - Winery ** SOLD OUT **

An appetizing earthy note at the start makes way for a complex character, including hints of citrus, pear, hazelnut, vanilla and spice, that gains nuance and fans out on the finish. From California. Drink now through 2002.

Ripe, rich and full-bodied, with a slight leafy-minty accent to the core of pear, fig, anise and melon flavors. A bit coarse in texture, but time in the bottle should soften the mouthfeel. Drink now through 2005.

Sweet oak and hints of minerals add mo... Connoisseurs Guide. A Sauvignon Blanc wine from California in USA. 2009 Chalk Hill Sauvignon Blanc Estate 750ml

Bold, ripe, complex and concentrated in style, this California Chardonnay is brimming with flavor mdash; layers of rich fig, pear, pineapple and smoky, toasty oak that linger on the long and complex finish. A worthy successor to the rsquo;95, a Spectator Selection last year. Drink now through 2002.

Winemaker's Notes:

The wine boasts intense aromas of Asian pear, green apple, toasted hazelnut and integrated oak. Our signature combination of richness and elegance is evidenced by the creamy, crisp flavors of lemon pie, and exotic spice, all buoyed by the bright, fresh acidity.

Tasting Notes:

Our 2009 Sauvignon Blanc captures the character of the variety, the complexity of our site and the coolness of the vintage. The nose offers peach, mango, Butterscotch Melon and lemon. The flavors add mango, passion fruit, and Musque to the mix. While this Sauvignon Blanc is ripe and powerful, it also possesses the ample structure and acidity to age.
