More fruit-driven, the 2000 Chardonnay Red Shoulder Ranch is full-bodied, powerful, and rich with oodles of orange marmalade, apricot, peach, and pineapple liqueur-like notes as well as beautifully integrated oak. For a wine of this size, there is a vivaciousness because of the vibrant acidity. Enjoy it over the next 3ndash;4 years.

The 1995 reveals a super-rich nose, considerable body and intensity, high extraction of flavor, yet no sense of heaviness or flabbiness mdash; no doubt because the underlying zingy acidity gives the wine vibrancy and lift. This non-malolactic Chardonnay is aged in 50% new French oak casks, with balance in one-year old barrels. Well-endowed, with considerable glycerin and a blossoming complexity, the 1995 should drink well for another 2ndash;3 years.

Production of the non-malolactic, full-throttle Red Shoulder Ranch Chardonnay ranges between 4,500ndash;6,000 cases per year. The exceptional 2004 exhibits plenty of honeysuckle, tropical fruit, and citrus oil characteristics, a subtle touch of smoky oak, zesty acidity, and a full, fleshy palate. Enjoy it over the next several years.

Powerful in the white Burgundy manner, this 100% Chardonnay was aged in 85% new oak and is very ripe. It brims with pineapple tart, tangerine, lime, vanilla-infused cregrave;me brucirc;leacute;e and smoky wood flavors, with a firm minerality suggesting the tang of cold steel. Dryness and zesty acidity give it balance and elegance.

The non-malolactic barrel-fermented, green/gold-colored 2007 Chardonnay Red Shoulder Ranch offers loads of tropical fruit, pear, and honeysuckle characteristics in its full-bodied personality. The oak component has been downplayed over recent vintages, and the wine is all the better for it, displaying gorgeously pure fruit. It should drink nicely for 2ndash;4 years.

Another great RSR. A bit soft, but thatrsquo;s okay, as the pineapple custard, white peach and vanilla-oak flavors are perked up by bright citron and Meyer lemon. The finish is pure honey, rich and long and spicy. Such a complex wine.
