The 2006 Chardonnay spent time in 24% new French oak with 30% of the wine going through malolactic fermentation. It is a serious Chardonnay at a bargain price.

Oaky, supple and structured, this sturdy Chardonnay is built upon clean green apple fruit and nicely layered toasty oak. It's the same formula as before: one third new French oak, one third malolactic, and nicely expresses open, fruit-driven, barrel-enhanced flavors with crisp citrus fruit.

Smooth, ripe and generous. Not a big wine, but this has pointed apple and pineapple fruit, nicely shaped with hints of cream and spice. The finish lingers well. Drink now through 2011.

Luring aromatics of toasted almonds and buttery notes swirl among tropical fruit aromas. The creamy palate is layered with apple tart and pineapple upside down cake. This satisfying Chardonnay leaves lingering banana on the finish and balanced acidity. - Winery ** SOLD OUT **

WS 87 Pts - According to Wine Spectator - Light and tangy, this white is crisp with lemony acidity, picking up apple and spice notes on the sharp-edged finish. Tasting Notes - Luring aromatics of toasted almonds and buttery notes swirl among tropical fruit aromas. The creamy palate is layered with apple tart and pineapple upside down cake. This satisfying Chardonnay leaves lingering banana on the finish and balanced acidity.

A bright and zingy style, this Washington white is lively on the palate, with citrus, mineral and pear flavors. Finishes with a nice lime bite that lingers on the racy finish. Drink now through 2003.
