2006 Wente Clone Chardonnay
92 Points, Steve Heimoff, Wine Enthusiast, October 2009: "A gorgeous, flamboyant Chardonnay, with a rich, creamy mouthfeel and opulent flavors of peaches, orange popsicle, candied orange peel, buttered toast and cinnamon, brightened with crisp acidity. A real crowd-pleaser."
This is one of the most intense and character-laden wines we produce, showcasing the unique qualities of this complex selection. The "Wente" Clone is an intense Chardonnay loaded with honey, citrus, mandarin, minerals and structure.
