Rating: 86/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the October 2010 issue. A little less rich and not so keen on clear fruit in the nose as is the winery's Reserve bottling, this relatively simple, slightly juicy version starts out on the palate well enough, but its attractive themes of sweet apples waver as grapefruity coarseness and a bit of heat make their appearance, and it finishes with a twist of unneeded bitterness.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.

Rating: 91/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the October 2010 issue. Here is a confident, fully ripened, no-nonsense Chardonnay that combines a wealth of keen, apple-like fruit with well-measured oak, and it does so with a fine sense of balance. Big-bodied, but not at all overbearing and showing more than enough richness and depth to counter its slight drift to finishing heat, it is a fine example of what California does best. It is easy to taste now but will not fade away any time soon, and it should be tagged for drinking with the likes of well-seasoned salmon or richly sauced lobster preparations.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Classic Carneros passionfruit and tropical fruit with hints of orange rind, lemon and stone fruits. Lots of clove, honeysuckle and oak flavor with hints of lees, wet stone and flint. Fresh musk melon, apple pie, cinnamon spice and pineapple flavors. Rich, round and creamy palate with vanilla and butterscotch. Complex and long with roasted nuts, lemon peel, apple and peach flavors lingering on the finish.
