Light yellow-gold. Fresh, mineral-tinged tangerine, quince and sweet butter on the nose, with a gentle floral quality building with air. Green apple, citrus fruit and toasted brioche flavors are deepened by iodine and lees, and perked up by excellent back-end lift and cut. Nothing heavy or loose-knit here but this chardonnay packs a serious punch.

The light green/gold-colored 2008 Chardonnay Zio Tony Ranch reveals more butterscotch, honeyed mandarin orange, citrus oil, brioche, leesy, waxy notes along with full-bodied richness and a California style that mimics a premier cru Meursault with its hazelnut and subtle smokiness. Drink this stunning Chardonnay over the next 7-8 years.

Bold, ripe and fleshy, offering exotic floral and spicy notes, along with flavors of bubble gum, fig, honeydew melon and hazelnut. Full-bodied and viscous, gaining depth and nuance on the long, tapered finish.
