Shows the weight, complexity and sheer deliciousness that this bottling almost always displays. Chardonnay fans will love the oaky, creamy flavors of pineapple tart, pear and lemon jam and buttered toast. The winemaker recommends pairing with black cod, and if you have a Chinese restaurant that makes a good version of this honey and soy inspired dish, it will be heaven.

Vivid yellow-gold. Powerful scents of orange, pear skin, toasty lees and iodine. Much more complex than the Edna Valley bottling today, offering powerful citrus and orchard fruit flavors and complicating notes of lees and minerals. Finishes with strong mineral cut and lingering spiciness.

Bright gold. At once richer and livelier than the Edna Valley bottling, displaying scents of pear, orange oil, buttered apple and smoky minerals. Sappy orchard and citrus fruit flavors provide very good palate coverage and are lifted by tangy acidity. The orange note comes back strongly on the finish, which leaves a dusty, stony quality behind.

Oaky, with butterscotch and smoky caramel-honey flavors standing out over the underlying pineapples, oranges and minerals. Finishes dry and crisp.

Tight, with an earthy edge to the focused beam of pear, mineral and light oak flavors. Drink now through 2003.

A flinty white, with wet stone notes. Marked by green apple, pear and spice flavors, this is full-bodied and ends with a clean, snappy finish. Drink now through 2015.

A shade trimmer than Talleyrsquo;s Edna Valley bottling, with a flinty mineral edge to the floral apple and pear fruit. Full-bodied, ending with a complex, lingering finish. Drink now through 2012.
