2003 Chardonnay, Sonoma Coast
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Full medium yellow with a green tinge. Very ripe aromas of pear, orange, honey and nuts, plus a lively suggestion of greener fruits. The sweetest and thickest of these three appellation bottlings, with exotic flavors of orange oil and spice. Chewy and long. An impressive wine considering that the vines are very young.

Fresh, ripe and vibrant, with vivid citrus, lemon peel, ripe pear and apple and lively acidity that keeps the flavors lively and mouthwatering. Light toasty oak adds another dimension and the texture is smooth and polished. Drink now through 2009. 700 cases made. '
