The 2007 season was perfect for growing Chardonnay. Ideal weather through harvest allowed grapes from every block to reach desired ripeness. Aromas are concentrated and complex – white flower, sweet cream, ripe peach, lemon oil and wet stone – leading to a palate anchored with rich minerality and tropical and stone fruit. A clean acidity and mouth-filling texture unite pear, pineapple and sweet orange fruit with subtly sweet brown spice and honeyed toast.
"Bold, rich and full-boded, with succulent fig, apricot, smoky oak and roasted marshmallow flavors that are complex and distinctive, finishing with a long, intricate finish and subtle flavor notes. Drink now through 2015."
"The light straw/gold-hued 2007 Chardonnay Estate reveals an attractive bouquet of smoky hazelnuts, nectarines, and buttered citrus, medium to full body, and good freshness and acidity. Enjoy it over the next 1-2 years. "
