($75) Light yellow. Mineral-driven aromas of orange zest, pear and smoked meat, complicated by an intense note of iodine. Surprisingly light on its feet, with focused citrus and mineral flavors underscored by vibrant minerality. The finish repeats the iodine element and shows outstanding length and focus.

The 2005 La Carriere (1,900 cases) is sensational and showing much better than it did last year, and then it was pretty stunning. This wine has terrific fresh acidity that buttresses the lemon and orange blossom notes mixed with honeyed pear and hints of peach and nectarine. A gorgeous, mineral-laced Chardonnay, it should drink nicely for 5-7 years.

A big, bold style, with plenty of toasty oak and elements of graham cracker and wood. But also shows ripe, rich pear, apple and honeyed fruit that fans out nicely on the palate. 1,900 cases made.

Straw colored. Pear flavors on the nose give way to caramel and minerality on the palate. The finish goes on and on. After an hour of air, this is very tasty.

Terrific example of New World chard.; notes of butterscotch, melon and floral essence on the palate; very smooth, drinks great now but should last awhile
