A bit coconutty with classic apple, butter, vanilla and baking spice aromas. Bright and juicy in the mouth with a hint of creamy vanilla flavors framing a simple but fresh core of peach, apple and lemon fruit. There's a hint of something slightly vegetal on the back end that adds some apple core complexity to the fairly long and nicely succulent finish. This is well balanced and fresh and really is a lovely little Chardonnay. Great value. 86pts Acidity: Medium Perceived Sweetness: Low Oak: Low Spicy Flavors: Medium Low Savory Flavors: Low Fruity Flavors: Medium Intensity of Flavor: Medium Weight in Mouth: Medium Low

Decent color. Nose with apple, pear. Crisp wine full of apple and lemon. The oak is definitely there but not overwhelming. Actually a very nice house wine for the $ 86pts

I drank this with a person who thought they hated Chardonnays. This unoaked Chardonnay was delightful, a bit sweet and almost effervescent. The bottle was a hit!

Vintage: 2010 03/26/2013

A wine with tropical and stone fruit flavors, complemented by a flinty minerality and bright acidity. Opens with sweet vanilla and clean citrus. Creamy peach and apricot lead into a long, smooth and elegant finish.

Vintage: 2009 11/17/2011

Sweet lemon and peach at entry, with a core of passion fruit, grilled pineapple and red apple. The flavor builds with layers of vanilla, whipped cream and brown sugar. Rich and concentrated flavors finish smooth with a hint of lingering nutmeg spice.

Its minerally component adds an attractive note of solidity to this wine s ripe appley aromas and the toasty oak backdrop brings its own extra note of interest. Full on the palate and softened by an oily glyceriny quality at entry it firms up across the palate and finds balancing acidity in the late going. Typical of Vine Cliff the wine is both rich and somewhat tight at the same time and it is sure to reward a bit of cellaring. Connoisseurs Guide.

"Rating: 86/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the October 2010 issue. A little less rich and not so keen on clear fruit in the nose as is the winery's Reserve bottling


Vintage: 2008 11/12/2010

Rating: 86/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the October 2010 issue. A little less rich and not so keen on clear fruit in the nose as is the winery's Reserve bottling, this relatively simple, slightly juicy version starts out on the palate well enough, but its attractive themes of sweet apples waver as grapefruity coarseness and a bit of heat make their appearance, and it finishes with a twist of unneeded bitterness.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.

Rating: 91/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the October 2010 issue. Here is a confident, fully ripened, no-nonsense Chardonnay that combines a wealth of keen, apple-like fruit with well-measured oak, and it does so with a fine sense of balance. Big-bodied, but not at all overbearing and showing more than enough richness and depth to counter its slight drift to finishing heat, it is a fine example of what California does best. It is easy to taste now but will not fade away any time soon, and it should be tagged for drinking with the likes of well-seasoned salmon or richly sauced lobster preparations.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.
