This wine, produced from a single Clone 4 Chardonnay block within our mountainous estate, is the epitome of unctuous Chardonnay. Rich nectarine, jasmine and custard notes provide an aromatic introduction to the weighty, syrupy mid-palate and toasty finish. With its high pH and mouth-coating viscosity, the Vintner Select can hold its own even when paired with the richest dishes.

Wine AdvocateTwo white wines have just been released, including the 2006 Chardonnay Vintner's Select. It offers up copious aromas of lemon blossoms, nectarines, pear, crushed rock, and white flowers. Well-made with zesty acidity, it possesses that minerality that emerges from these high elevation vineyards. Consume it over the next 2-3 years.

Wine EnthusiastThis is quite a hefty young Chard. It takes the basic elements of ripe, potent fruit, oak, and Burgundian-inspired technique and elevates it all, a Chard on steroids. The peach, tropical fruit, pear, candied ginger and charry oak flavors have an acidic scour. Drink now and for the next 5 years.

Wine SpectatorHints of ripe pear, juniper berry, herb and light oak give this a measure of complexity, but needs time. Drink now through 2010. 460 cases made.
