Aromas of Meyer lemon, grilled pineapple, and guava are followed by flavors of nectarine, papaya, and lemon-tangerine, with touches of spice and minerality. The balanced acidity lingers on a long finish. Pair with dungeness crab or pan-sautéed petrale sole, or any fish and shellfish are ideal with this wine. Cheese like manchego is another fantastic option.

This widely available wine is compelling on many fronts. Strong aromas of Key lime pie, Anjou pear, grapefruit pith, chalk and buttercream lead into a generous palate of white peach and smoked nectarine. It's rich but balanced.

Brought up mostly in barrel (10% was in tank), the 2018 Chardonnay Monterey offers lots of honeyed melon and tropical notes as well as a medium-bodied, juicy, nicely balanced style on the palate. It's another good value from this estate.

Dried fig and ripe apple flavors blend easily in this spicy version, with buttery accents on the finish. Drink now.
