ANGELINE Chardonnay Russian River Valley 2001
89 points, $10
A ripe, juicy style, with pretty scents of ripe apple, nectarine, tangerine and light cedary oak. Sleek and delicately balanced, it finishes with a grassy aftertaste. Drink now through 2008. 5,500 cases made. Best Values. From California. —James Laube
