Pale gold in appearance, the 2015 Estate Chardonnay offers aromas of cantaloupe, yellow apple skin, and a hint of toasted bread crumbs. The palate is juicy and bright. Notes of peach nectar, stone fruit pith, wet river rock, and lemon curd lead to a refreshing and slightly toasty finish. Try pairing this chardonnay with black cod and truffled cauliflower or lemony grilled chicken and spinach.

I found much to like on the nose, where subtle tropical scents of guava and passion fruit slowly give way to more resinous aromas. The palate is very well focused, offering freshly sliced pineapple and Conference pear and gradually gaining depth with aeration, though I would have preferred a little more tension right on the finish.

Butterscotch candies, lime spritz, concentrated honeysuckle and strong praline aromas show on the nose of this appellation blend. The palate combines salted butter, orange rind and white peach, with hints of white pepper, chamomile and smoke.

The 2015 Chardonnay Estate is solid, slightly straight forward white that offers pretty apple, spice and floral aromatics, medium-bodied richness, a supple, textured profile a clean finish. Coming mostly from the Rincon Vineyard (28% was from Rosemary's), it spent 16 months, on lees, in 25% new French oak. Drink it over the coming 4-5 years.

Lighty fruity, this is an easy-drinking, picnic-style white, with modest pear and apple flavors. Drink now. 6,305 cases made.
