Very ripe, this gushes with blackberry, boysenberry and fig fruit, along with mineral, briar and toast notes. Flashy and fruit-driven, but has structure and length too. Drink now through 2007. 850 cases made. —James Molesworth
Complex and beguiling, with floral, rosemary, candied citrus and mineral aromas and flavors. This is both elegant and intense, with a vibrant structure and long finish. Ideal as an aperitif or with light foods. Drink now through 2007. 35,000 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson
A focused and very fresh white with apple, mineral and lemon aromas and flavors. Medium- to full-bodied, with good acidity and a long finish. This is real Pinot Grigio here. Well done. Drink now. 2,165 cases made. —James Suckling
A bit closed now, with pure-tasting mineral, green apple and smoke flavors, with notes of fennel and tarragon. Impressively structured; this medium-bodied white should develop nicely. Best from 2006 through 2008. 50,000 cases made. —Kim Marcus
Very creamy in texture, with mocha and vanilla caressing the black cherry and raspberry fruit flavors. Long, stylish finish. Delicious. Drink now through 2006. 1,500 cases made. —James Molesworth
