($50) Yellow-gold. Deep, smoky scents of pit fruits, yellow plum and toasty lees. The richest of these chardonnays, offering dense pit and orchard fruit flavors and a pliant, creamy texture. The finish echoes the leesy quality and leaves a sweet floral honey quality behind.

The 2007 Chardonnay Hawk Hill Vineyard displays copious amounts of white corn, honeyed pear, and tropical fruit characteristics in a full-bodied style with zesty acidity, admirable focus, and a medium to full-bodied, rich finish. Although it is my least favorite of these four Chardonnays, it is still an outstanding effort. It is just overwhelmed by the competition. Tired of drinking one oxidized white Burgundy after another? If so, check out wines such as this.

Floral, honeysuckle, spice and leesy, pithy citrus peel scents are full-bodied on the palate, with lively acidity and spice and citrus notes. Gains depth and complexity on the finish, where a pleasant minerality folds in.

A full-bodied Chardonnay. Not as full throttled as some of their others. Ripe apples, peaches, melons and pears. Fleshy and round in the mouth. Acididty adds nice balance. Follows thorugh on the mid-palate and finishes strong.
