Cooper-Garrod 2010 Gravel Ridge Vineyard Chardonnay (Santa Cruz Mountains)

Editors' Choice

Some Chardonnays with this much oak and lees influence lose all sense of terroir, but not this one. Somehow, vintner Bill Cooper has allowed the fruit to express itself, showing up as minerals, papayas and apricots. It's balanced and compelling. The price makes it a bargain.
