"This is redolent of pear and dried fig flavors, offering some citrusy hints. Minerally midpalate, with a juicy finish that is well-spiced. Drink now through 2021. 352 cases made. -KM" (WS)

"The 2015 Chardonnay Chamise opens with gorgeous lemon curd, honey-drizzled white peach and grapefruit notes with touches of toasted almonds, beeswax and brioche. Light to medium-bodied, with a lively backbone of acid lifting the citrus and savory flavors, it has a lovely creamy suggestion and great length." (WA)

"Brilliant yellow. Expansive tropical and orchard fruit aromas, along with suggestions of candied orange, honey and vanilla. In a lush, almost decadent style, offering broad nectarine, poached pear and mango flavors that are kept in check on the back half by building, juicy acidity. Closes smooth and very long, with a repeating vanilla note and lingering smokiness." (VM)

"This is the pioneering winery's annual take on the fatter California style of Chardonnay, starting with a fat nose of buttery baked apples, seared white peach, pillowy meringue and pear-laced pastry crust. Cinnamon-laced apple pie and buttered toast show on the palate, but there's an underlying citrus freshness that keeps it lively." (WE)

Wine Tasting Notes:
Classically varietal. Intensely aromatic. Baked granny smith apple, citrus crème brulee. Opulent oak toast notes. Defined acidity, hints of vanilla and butterscotch. Focused and lengthy.
