($58) Full yellow. Very ripe fruit notes of apricot and papaya complicated by smoke and truffle on the rather reticent nose. Rich, sweet and a bit exotic but still rather tightly wound, and showing its backbone today. This densely packed chardonnay, which struck me as more thoroughly ripe than the 2003 version, finishes brisk and persistent.

From the Heintz Vineyard, the 2004 Chardonnay Isobel Green Valley is a 500-case cuvee aged 18 months in barrel. It reveals crisp acidity, a steely structure, and beautiful honeysuckle, orange blossom, and subtle smoky characteristics.

Fresh and fruity, teetering on sweet, with tangerine, peach and nectarine fruit that's pure and juicy. Turns a little simpler on the finish, but holds its fruit nicely.
