1.5 L  -- Russian River Valley, Olivet Lane, 14.0% alcohol -- www.merryedwards.com

The multidimensional aroma of this wine exhibits vanilla crème brûlée, fresh cardamom, crisp pink lady apple, yellow raspberry, tarte tatin and Peach Melba. Accents of Meyer lemon, olive, toasted hazelnuts and spicy oak create a composition of opposites. The palate is full, round and creamy while at the same time, crisp and focused. It?s soft and plush, yet well balanced with the good acidity natural to Chardonnay grown in our own Russian River Valley. The opulent finish lingers on without diminishing, promising much for the future.

Ripe fruit and oak loom large in this wine, produced from relatively old vines in the heart of the appellation, long a source for the producer's Pinot Noir. Preserved lemon, fleshy melon and caramel dance around each other, steeped in Golden Delicious apple, honey and pear. A high wire of acidity marks the finish. -- VIRGINIE BOONE
