This plush white features lots of pastry notes, with concentrated flavors of ripe apple, baked pear and dried peach. Offers a richly spiced finish.

This is a mineral-infused Chardonnay that shows complex aromas of grilled pineapple, lemon oil, apple skin and a judicious touch of oak. The palate has very impressive acid making this a racy guest at the dinner table.

Light on the nose, this shows delicate aromas of Asian pear, honeysuckle, squeezed lemon wedge, fresh coconut flesh and a tiny bit of butter. The palate is also demure yet delicious, with lightly poached apples, squeezed lime and a chalky textural grip.

Get past this wine’s initial toasty scent of oak and you’ll find some delicious fruit; its sunny papaya flavor and salty, marine tang feel like textbook Santa Rita Hills chardonnay, capturing this high-elevation south-facing hillside vineyard with roots in marine sediments.

Sea salt, honeysuckle, lemon-sprayed apple and a touch of graphite dominate the nose of this tasty wine that grows only more interesting with time. Lime zest plays on the edges of the palate, though the middle shows a nectarine and yellow-pear richness. Energetic acidity tickles the
tongue throughout the sip.
