($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.

Smoky, toasty oak and ripe pear are evident in the aroma and flavor, yet this is tight and closed on the palate, so there's probably an upside given its youth.

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.
