The 2007 Unfiltered Chardonnay is an inviting dark straw hue. This
powerful wine opens with ripe melon and fig notes layered with allspice,
cinnamon and caramel aromas. Flavors of baked pear, poached apple,
caramel and fresh pie crust persist on the lingering creamy finish.
This opulent Chardonnay can complement a wide variety of dishes.

"Very dry, a lean, austere Chardonnay currently marked by
aloof flavors of lemons, limes and oak. Yet there’s
something going on. As the wine warms in the
glass it becomes richer, showing hidden pineapple
tart, macadamia and crème brûlée. Firm,
minerally acidity is there throughout, making for
a mouthwatering cleanliness. Drink this streamlined,
Chablis-like wine now–2013. "
"Subtlety is not be among this powerful wine's gifts, but those looking for richness, range and real complexity are bound to be pleased by this very deep and mouthfilling effort. It is quite full in body and slightly oily in feel, yet it is charged with a streak of invigorating acid that keeps it bright and alive. It does show a bit of last-minute alcohol, but its minor coarseness is a small price to pay for this kind of richness and depth, and service with food will make its heat moot."
"A rich, unctuous, buttery style. Full-bodied, with spicy fig, melon, smoky oak and honeydew melon flavors that gain depth, body and complexity, ending with a roasted marshmallow aftertaste. Still a bit coarse in texture, but all the right ingredients are in the right places. Drink now through 2016."
