90 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2008

($32) Pale straw-yellow with golden highlights. Butter and vanilla notes complement the aromas of banana, candied orange and pineapple, with a sexy jasmine accent providing lift.

This smooth, shapely chardonnay shows terrific balance and more restraint than usual, with less tropical fruit character than past bottlings.
