A delicious young Chardonnay that features layers of ripe, spicy pear, fig and honeydew melon, hints of hazelnut, nutmeg and citrus rind, and a long, persistent finish. Drink now through 2008. 3,100 cases made.

Heady, with lots of black cherry, blackberry, bramble, tobacco and grilled beef aromas and flavors. Lots of toast, but very juicy, with thick layers of fruit pumping through the finish. Love its character. Drink now through 2006. 360 cases imported. —James Molesworth
