One of the most amazing Chardonnays I have tasted, everything about this Napa vintage is close to perfect. Color, nose, taste... It all blends together to be one of the best wine drinking experiences available. Especially note the obviously present buttery taste. And though it's hard not to want to drink it all quickly because of how good it is, your patience will pay off as it opens and adds new layers of complexity both on the nose and tongue. Enjoy! (I certainly did!)

A sensuous wine that fills the palate with a full spectrum of rich, ripe fruit flavors of pears, apples, spice, tropical fruit and honeysuckle. This is a round, lush wine with creamy flavors and light oak nuances. There is a crisp, lingering finish of fruit and a delightful buttery note that is the classic Rombauer style.

An attractive, buttery, honeyed, flowery nose with toasty oak in the background is followed by a full-bodied, fleshy, muscular wine. It offers substantial intensity and robustness. Drink it over the next two years for its exuberant style.

Creamy and elegant, with flavors of sweet butter, pear and peaches, finishing with a slight waxy note. Drink now through 2005.

Displaying the hallmark of a cooler climate Chardonnay, this wine features layers of rich tropical fruit, melon, and peach wrapped in a ribbon-crisp acidity with a pinch of spice.

Seductive aromas of honeysuckle, fig and melon turn smooth and silky on the palate. Almost sweetish in texture, with a nice touch of vanilla-scented oak that provides an added flavor dimension. Drink now.

A rich wine with layers of tropical fruit, peaches and pears. The fruit opens up into creamy textures of apples and pears that glide across the palate. Hints of citrus and light oak tones highlight the wine's lingering finish.

Golden yellow color with a pale hue. Seductive aromas of peach, melon, and citrus are balanced with honeysuckle and vanilla. On the palate, flavors of pears, peaches and melons are backed with lively acidity. A nice touch of vanilla-scented oak provides an added flavor dimension. The creamy palate has a lingering finish of melon and citrus fruit with a satisfying buttery complexity. - Winery
