"The cuvee most likely to be encountered by readers is the 2009 Chardonnay Overlook, a blend assembled by longtime winemaker Eric Stern for proprietors Mike and Mary Colhoun. Completely accessed from Sonoma fruit (as opposed to several previous examples that came from numerous California appellations), it exhibits a light green/gold color as well as notes of nectarines, white peaches and hints of honey as well as tropical fruits. Medium to full-bodied, pure and fresh with the wood pushed to the background, this dry, classy white should be enjoyed over the next 2-3 years."
