The light straw/gold-colored 2006 Chardonnay Estate reveals more restrained as well as more noble aromatics of crushed rocks, poached pears, and hints of pineapples, orange rind, and candied citrus. Medium to full-bodied with very good acidity, admirable purity, and a long finish, it is best drunk during its first decade of life some of these Chardonnays can last 20 years or more.
This iconic winery continues to offer wines with personalities and styles that set them apart (especially the estate wines) from just about anything else readers will taste from California. Estate grown as well as purchased grapes are utilized in their less expensive Saratoga Cuvees.-RP
