Simi Chardonnay Sonoma 2009
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.

Subtle green apple, pear, peach, citrus and citrus blossom give this white a clean, refreshing core of flavors, ending with a kiss of toasty oak. Drink now.
Ripe and lush, with layers of pear, butter, apricot and peach pit flavors. Well-integrated toasty oak carries through the finish.
Appearance: Brilliantly clear, light yellow straw Aroma: Vibrant notes of pear, green apple and orange zest, accented by soft hints of cream and toast. Flavor: Lively on the palate with peach, pear, lemon and pineapple flavors, highlighted with warm spice notes and caramel cream.
"This structured and balanced Cabernet Sauvignon is a perfect match for meaty dishes made of beef or lamb
Our 2009 Russian River Valley Reserve Chardonnay, medium straw in color with an alluring golden edge, offers forward fruit with minerality that is lifted and framed by sweet oak notes and spice. On the nose, look for toasted brioche, honey, smoky notes, lemon curd, grilled pineapple, lychee fruit, green apple, pear, apricot, and a subtle perfume of honey and orange blossom. Flavors lead with a focused entry of vibrant fresh fruit: green apple, peach, and pear with a structured finish of zesty citrus and juicy pineapple-all of which are tied together with mineral notes. Stunning when paired with New England clam chowder, roast chicken with root vegetables, or grilled salmon with risotto. - Winery
There's lots of oak on top of a somewhat thin wine, but it's pleasant enough, with modest pineapple and peach flavors and dusty spices. Finishes quick, with oak flavors.
Broad leesiness and toasty oak give this a smoky bacon scent. Itrsquo;s supple and warm, a white to chill for a grilled pork chop.
