Fresh and appealing, the 2007 Napa Valley Chardonnay opens with aromas of citrus and orange spice, underlain with subtle hints of white flowers and crème brulée. Flavors of crisp pear and citrus blossom in the mouth, with an intriguing tinge of savoriness and minerality, all supported by well-integrated oak.
"The 2007 Chardonnay Reserve reveals more hazelnut, oak, citrus oil, tropical fruit, and orange blossom characteristics. Although it is a good effort, it is not twice as good as the introductory Chardonnay, even though it’s priced twice as high. However, it should last 3-4 years or longer.
