The 2010 Chardonnay North Slope is all about density and material. An imposing, powerful Chardonnay, the North Slope will appeal most to readers who like intense, buttery wines. Here too, I am amazed by the positive development the wine has had over the last year. Butterscotch, hazelnuts and spices are layered into the generous, inviting finish. Anticipated maturity: 2013–2018.

The 2010 Chardonnay North Slope is laced with lemon, hazelnuts, spices and dried flowers. It shows good body and length in a medium-bodied, fairly restrained style that is quite appealing. Anticipated maturity: 2012andndash;2018.

Vivid yellow. Lively, spice-accented aromas of tangerine, melon and white flowers, with toasty lees and sweet butter accents adding depth. Offers an array of citrus fruit and spice flavors, with suave honeysuckle and brioche nuances emerging with air. Lingers impressively on the finish, which shows nervy orange pith and ginger character.
