($55) Bright medium yellow. Superrich aromas of candied yellow fruits, lemon drop, roasted grain, smoke and vanilla. Large-scaled, broad and impressively fine-grained; this really fills the mouth but bright acids give it a light touch. A leesy quality adds complexity. This seems every bit as rich as the superb 2004, and also calls for 12 to 18 months of patience.

A harmoniously balanced Chardonnay with all of the textbook Alder Springs lushness. A dead ringer for the wine in barrel. Mineral, anise and pear aromas. A feeling of lemon chiffon on the palate with a hint of round nuttiness.
