Inviting aromas of pear, lemongrass, ripe peach, jasmine and graham cracker rise from the glass, revealing this wine's layered complexity. On the palate, a silky texture creates weight and volume, with elegant acidity framing the stone fruit and citrus flavors. The finish is long and fresh, with tantalizing hints of lemon zest, vanilla and clove.

Wine Review OnlineIf you take a sip and close your eyes you can taste the bright California sun shining down on the grapes. These Chardonnay flavors are rich, ripe and concentrated, with peaches and other stone fruits dominating the mix. The overall buttery richness is supported by oak and vanilla tempered by just enough acidity. Some tasters might find this vintage a little too assertive, but you can tame its dominatrix tendencies by serving it with food, especially richly flavored and textured dishes. When I paired it recently with veal schnitzel topped with mushroom sauce, the wine purred and wrapped itself deliciously around the dish’s complex network of taste and texture.
