Year-in and year-out, this is almost always an excellent buy. Edna Valley Vineyard produces large quantities of high-quality, flavorful Chardonnay that is often crisper than some other wines from the same region. Yet it still diplays the rich tropical-fruit-dominated flavors this area is noted for. The 2000 is another good wine. Well-balanced, with both peach and tropical flavors, a refreshing citrus edge, well-integrated oak, and a clean finish. - HK 2002-03-15
