2007 Stonestreet Red Point Chardonnay
Alexander Valley
Lush and opulent as are Stonestreet’s other Chards, with potent flavors of ripe mashed pineapples, crème brûlée, vanilla custard, vanilla and smoky sandalwood. Dramatic and compelling.

2008 Ramey Chardonnay, Ritchie Vnyd
Russian River Valley
Delivers a tight, taut laser beam of flavors, riding lively acidity that carries the green apple,
pineapple, citrus and honeydew melon notes. Gains depth and velocity, and is built to gain even
more with cellaring. Drink now through 2016.

2009 Marimar Chardonnay, Don Miguel
Russian River Valley
The nose is fragrant with floral aromas of honeysuckle, characteristic of the Spring Mountain clone, plus notes of pineapple and orange zest from the Rued. On the palate the wine keeps opening up to reveal hints of apple pie and tapioca, nicely framed by judicious oak reminiscent of hazelnut and spice. A complex wine, round and well balanced, with a creamy and engaging finish.
