($75) Bright gold. High-pitched, very pure aromas of Meyer lemon, crushed stone, iodine, white pepper and honeysuckle, with late-arriving notes of quinine and tarragon. Highly concentrated wine, with superb depth and vivacity to its citrus, floral and gripping mineral flavors. This seems as much a solid as a liquid. Its endless finish is strikingly tactile and leaves intense citrus and chalk notes behind.

Readers looking for something that tastes like pure crushed rocks liquified into a beverage should check out the nuanced 2007 Chardonnay Parmalee Hill Stone Flat Vineyard. Tropical fruits such as orange and nectarine as well as pineapple are present, but again, the liqueur of rocks dominates the wine, as there are also notes of quince and white currants. A powerful wine with great acidity and a long finish, this wine should evolve nicely for a decade or more.

Beautiful mineral driven Chardonnay, with lime, crushed stones, tropical fruit, and a herbal nuance. Long finish. Beautiful balance.
