($75) Greenish-gold color. Musky peach pit and mango aromas are complicated by smoky minerals and honeysuckle. Firm, tightly focused citrus and dried pit fruit flavors gain weight and gentle sweetness with air, picking up a juicy melon quality. Firm finishing notes of pear skin, tarragon and minerals give this wine a grown-up character.

The 2006 Chardonnay McCrea Vineyard exhibits a light gold/green hue along with aromas of stone fruits, honey, orange zest (or is it tangerine?), and subtle wood spices. Full-bodied with beautiful texture as well as purity, and a long finish.

Fresh, rich and vibrant. Full-bodied, deep and concentrated, showing spicy green apple and pear flavors, with a lemon-citrus shading. Gains velocity on the finish, where this holds its focus. 3,634 cases made.
