Pale straw cast. Medium-bodied. Full acidity. Moderately extracted. Green apples, minerals. Crisp and clean with precisely defined flavors and a linear structure. firm acidity makes for a zesty finish.

A solid performance from a solid performer. Bosc pears and nectarines flesh out a lemon-lime backbone. Finishes well, with lemon and nutmeg nuances. On the lean side, but crisp and clean.

Composed of top quality fruit from the Carneros and Russian River appellations, Simi Chardonnay is characterized by excellent balance, luscious fruit flavors and an elegant finish.

Has a heavy fruit concentration with a silky texture and a full round finish. The wine exhibits aromas and flavors of tropical fruit, vanilla, butter, citrus and spice; goes very well with your grilled chicken or fish dishes.

Appealing green apple, pear, honeysuckle and spicy apricot flavors emerge from behind a green note up front for a long, rich aftertaste. Drink now through 2001.

A junior version of the very fine Reserve, the rsquo;05 is ripe and forward in tropical fruit and flowery spice flavors, with an overlay of smoky, creamy oak. Itrsquo;s explosive, but balanced and controlled.

Winemaker's Notes:

The remarkable color of this wine cannot be ignored. It is brilliantly clear straw with shades of gold throughout. The nose is similarly expressive, with bright nectarine, peach, apple, orange blossoms, and delicate spices along with hints of smoky toasted oak. It all comes together on the palate with well-defined, supremely balanced and forward flavors of tangerine, peach, and green apple that are lifted by a warm, toasty oak character best described as sweet vanilla mingled with hazelnut, nutmeg, and smoky bacon. This Chardonnay finishes with a delicate and light floral touch.

Tasting Notes:

Appearance: Brilliantly clear, light yellow straw Aroma: Fresh green apple, nectarine, Meyer lemon and orange zest are laced with notes of vanilla, honey and toasted brioche with a lifted mineral edge. Flavor: Golden delicious apple and tangerine are lightly warmed with subtle notes of cream, butter and smoke finishing with a note of lime zest.
