This is a striking showing. The Home Ranch was aged in French oak barrels 50% new with full malolactic fermentation. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019. -Antonio Galloni

Rich and creamy yet light and delicate on its feet with pear fig citrus and honeysuckle notes that gain depth ending with a light toasty oak aftertaste. Drink now through 2017. â_"JL

Apricot and tropical fruit aromas along with a hint of minerality and a whiff of burnt match. Fat creamy and sweet with a leesy complexity to the peach and apricot flavors. Finishes with good firmness and length. Ed Sbragia described 2009 as "my kind of chardonnay since I don't like the acidic sauvignon style of chardonnay."
