The Chardonnay offerings begin with the 2008 Chardonnay Indian Wells. Light gold-colored, it displays a nose of toast, pear, melon, and baking spices (thyme and tarragon). On the palate this medium-bodied effort has good volume, spicy flavors, and a lengthy finish. It is an excellent value in quality Chardonnay.

The 2007 Chardonnay Indian Wells is sourced primarily from the warm Wahluke Slope AVA. The wine was barrel-fermented in 27% new American oak, went through malolactic fermentation, and was aged sur lie for 9 months. Medium straw-colored, it offers up a pleasing nose of toast, baked apple, poached pear, and tropical aromas, especially pineapple. Medium-bodied, smooth-textured, and ripe, this balanced effort finishes with considerable persistence.

This is a bigger, riper, softer and richer version of Ste. Michelle’s Columbia Valley Chardonnay. Here the fruit slides into tropical, with flavors of ripe peach, banana and mango. There are plenty of buttery nut flavors, and a hint of alcoholic heat. A great choice for richly sauced shellfish.

Toasty, spicy aromas and flavors are more prominent than fruit in this smooth-textured, polished Chardonnay, echoing ripe pear and smoke as the finish lingers.
4 stars Restaurant Wine - March 27, 2009
Full bodied, lightly oaked, and complex, with some richness and good balance, with a medium long finish, tasting of apple, vanilla, roasted nut, spicy oak and butterscotch.
