Intense, mineral-laced citrus and pit fruit aromas are complicated by notes of anise, chamomile and iodine. Rich yet lively on the palate, offering concentrated Meyer lemon and nectarine flavors and notes of smoky minerals and honeysuckle. The mineral quality carries through the finish, which shows excellent clarity and persistence. This chardonnay should age slowly and gracefully.

Scents of lemon, vanilla and salt air rush through this young chardonnay, a cool mountain wine with a clear impression of the California coast. It glistens with white cherry flavors, herbal scents of forest underbrush and a gentle, honeyed aftertaste. Already showing incipient complexity, this will gain depth and breadth over the next several years.

Pure and rich, with tiers of white peach, nectarine, honeydew melon and ripe pear. Most intriguing on the finish, where the flavors linger and gain. Drink now through 2028. – JL

Oak adds the perfect touch of buttered toast. This showcases the opulence of Chardonnay, while maintaining balance and dryness.
