Here’s a racy, chiseled Chardonnay, with a pleasant veneer of smoky, buttered toast from new oak that enriches the lime and peach fruit. Elegant rather than powerful, it’s a food-friendly wine. Try with lobster risotto.
A very fruity Zinfandel, rewarding in blackberry, blueberry tart and currant flavors, accented with dark chocolate, anise and pepper. Too soft, and would benefit from greater crispness, but it’s a nice Zin now.
