Intense concentrated full-bodied and still a bit raw this delivers a complex mix of pear apple spice and honeysuckle ending with a long finish that offers a glimpse of smoky marshmallow. Drink now through 2011. 2262 cases made. WS.

Wine Advocate ReviewRated 91The 2006 Chardonnay is classic Californian in its display of assorted tropical fruits, full-bodied opulence, superb purity, good acidity, and long finish.Wine Tasting NotesAromas of lemongrass, honey and citrus, with a whiff of minerality; on the palate, tropical fruit flavors blend with a touch of judicious French oak. Creamy, smooth texture, well-balanced acidity with vanilla and citrus in balance. The fruit was picked at optimum maturity for a detectable richness. Drink now through 2010.
