Crisp, with a tight, focused band of citrus and pear notes, turning simple and earthy. Drink now through 2004.
The 1997 Chardonnay Steele Cuvée offers a lemony and mineral-scented nose with subtle oak and spice in the background. It is medium-bodied, pure, refreshing, and impressively-textured. Not a blockbuster, it is a well-made, elegant Chardonnay with both finesse and power. Enjoy it over the next 1-2 years.
All the expected pear, mineral and butter of a front-line Cal Chard. Mildly spicy in the mouth, with plenty of citrus fruit offset by a pleasant touch of mint. Fairly complex and elegant, this one comes very close to hitting the bull's eye.
Lemony, mineral scented. A concentrated full-bodied white packed with flavors of papaya, banana, pineapple and a clean spice finish. Delicious fruit and subtle, well-integrated oak.
Lots of up-front fruit and spice make this white distinctive, with tiers of fig, pear, melon, apricot and nutmeg cascading to a long finish with an intricate aftertaste. Even better than last year's version, also a Spectator Selection. Drink now through 2001.
