The Cold Creek Chardonnay is built upon 30-year-old vines, fully ripened at this warm site. Sensuous, soft and broadly laced with flavors of toasted nuts, brioche and apple pie, this luxurious Chardonnay still maintains a pleasing, focused structure that carries along flavors of lemon and apple, cut against the dominant oak. Cold Creek wines are among Washington's most ageworthy.

The 2006 Chardonnay Cold Creek Vineyard is sourced from a 32 year old vineyard, one of the first planted by the winery and ancient by Washington standards, with yields of less than 2 tons per acre. The wine was aged in 54% new oak and 50% was fermented with indigenous yeasts. Light gold in color, it reveals aromas of butterscotch, vanilla, apple, poached pear, and a hint of tropical fruits. Smooth-textured and nicely balanced, the wine’s finish is long and pure.

The hot climate of the Cold Creek Vineyard sharpens up the contours of this Chardonnay, ^which show more of a classic Washington character. Bright fruit, a mix of apples and peaches ^and pears, is shot through with streaks of butterscotch from fermentation in the new French oak.^ It's been through 100% malolactic, yet retains some crispness. Polished and full bodied.

The 2005 Chardonnay "Cold Creek Vineyard" exhibits an assertive personality with its light gold color, toasty, mineral, butterscotch, and tropical fruit aromas and flavors. This leads to a viscous, mouth-coating, full-bodied Chardonnay that has enough power to stand up to full-flavored fish courses and light meats. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.

The toasty, spicy style emphasizes oak over fruit at first, but this develops enough zing to bring it into balance, hitting apple and pear notes that don't quit. -Harvey Steiman
