Thunder Mountain 1997 Ciardella Vineyard Chardonnay (Santa Cruz Mountains)

Buttered popcorn and toasted nuts dominate the nose of this wine, but there's plenty of ripe, pear-tinged fruit to bolster those scents and provide depth. Rich, full-bodied and viscous in the mouth, yet it doesn't feel heavy, as well-balanced acidity provides backbone and extends the long, spicy finish. Joe Czerwinski
