    2002 Barrel Select Chardonnay View Label
  • Appellation: Santa Maria Valley Cottonwood Canyon Vineyard (Santa Maria, CA) -- (Winery Info & All Wines)
  • Winemaker: Norman Beko
  • The color is uniquely golden with a lemon hue while the oak & honey aromas branch out - with open time - to include honey, honeysuckle, lemon and coconut. The initial flavors are honeydew and cantaloupe with the lemon exhibiting the high acidity of the wine. On the palate, the roundness created by all the flavors smooth these components with heaviest accents on honey & coconut. The lingering finish continues to show all the above components. Please note: this wine will continue to change... ...read more

  • Appellation: Santa Cruz Mountains Bargetto Winery (Soquel, CA) -- (Winery Info & All Wines)

It’s never overwhelming but rather intriguing with its subtle spicy floral and lemon scents. This 2003 version was fairly ripe—24 , so there is some strength even to the nose yet it isn’t overdone. There is a definite creamyness to the texture but not without some spritley acidity to balance it. A sweetness is perfectly balanced with the acidity whic... ...read more
