Yellow straw. Moderately full-bodied. Full acidity. Moderately extracted. Lime, citrus, oak spice. Vibrant, lively and structured with impressive concentration and a lingering persistence of citrus acids. This should develop more complexity with further bottle age.

The 2007 Chardonnay Red Shoulder Ranch is a return to the brilliance of this cuvee. Excellent acidity backs up considerable tropical fruit notes offered in a medium to full-bodied, zesty, substantial format. There is little evidence of oak in either ...

Bold, ripe and delicious, with tiers of citrus-laced pear, pineapple, lemon drop and nectarine, yet for all its richness and depth, this is an elegantly styled wine that is graceful and polished. Drink now through 2009.

Clean, crisp and flinty, with green apple, lime, quince and spicy hazelnut notes that are pure and focused, gaining depth on the finish. Drink now through 2012.

The Carneros region offers a long, cool growing season. That, plus the prevention of malolactic fermentation by winemaker Elias Fernandez, emphasizes the refreshing acidity in this Chardonnay. Five different Chardonnay clones, notable for small clusters and low yields, are planted in this vineyard, named for the red-shouldered hawks that keep the rodents under control.

The 2009 Chardonnay Red Shoulder Ranch is a gorgeous wine laced with expressive fruit and an open, radiant personality. Subtle hints of French oak and flowers are nicely layered into the finish. The 2009 was aged 75% in French oak and 25% in stainless steel. Anticipated maturity: 2012andndash;2015.
