Winemaker Notes

The 2007 Chardonnay is a bright straw with green tinges. The aroma has a vibrant almost pungent perfume with great complexity. Fruit forward with nuances of orange peel, apple pie with cloves, peach jam and cinnamon like spicy French oak and subtle hints of almond meal. The palate is firm with fresh acid upfront and a central supple core of rich Chardonnay fruit. The mouth feel is full and intense with spicy apple and custard flavors. The finish is warm with light oak tannins finishing the wine dry with the perfumed fruit yeast and oak complexities lingering.

Critical Acclaim

WS 90
Wine Spectator

Generous, balanced and appealing for its orange-scented pear and spice flavors, lingering effectively on the polished finish. Drink now through 2013.

JH 90
Australian Wine Companion

Vibrant colour; lively grapefruit aroma with a hint of oak and spice; good depth and weight, and very clean and even on the finish.

Bordeaux Blends

View all wine

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World, especially in California, Washington, and Australia. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and/or Petit Verdot, these are sometimes referred to in the US as “Meritage” blends. In Bordeaux itself, Cabernet Sauvignon dominates in wines from the Left Bank of the Gironde river, while the Right Bank focuses on Merlot. Often, blends from outside the region are classified as being inspired by one or the other.

In the Glass

Cabernet-based, Left-Bank-styled wines are typically more tannic and structured, while Merlot-based wines modeled after the Right Bank are softer and suppler. Cabernet Franc can add herbal notes, while Malbec and Petit Verdot contribute color and structure. Wines from Bordeaux can be bold and fruit-forward or restrained and earthy, while New World facsimiles tend to emulate the former style. In general, Bordeaux red blends can have aromas and flavors of black currant, cedar, plum, graphite, and violet, with more red fruit flavors when Merlot makes up a high proportion of the blend.

Perfect Pairings

Since Bordeaux red blends are often quite structured and tannic, they pair best with hearty, flavorful, and fatty meat dishes. Any type of steak makes for a classic pairing. Equally welcome with these wines would be beef brisket, pot roast, braised lamb, or smoked duck.

Sommelier Secret

While the region of Bordeaux is limited to a select few approved grape varieties, the New World is free to experiment. Bordeaux blends in California may include Syrah, Petite Sirah, Zinfandel, or virtually any other grape deemed worthy by the winemaker. In Australia, Shiraz is a common component.
