2012 Carneros Chardonnay

"A graceful, seductive style, with an emphasis on bold yet subtle flavors, delivering a mix of poached pear, honeydew melon and creamy oak notes. Drink now through 2018." - JL

2013 Proprietor Chardonnay

"The 2013 Chardonnay Proprietor Selection exhibits terrific caramelized tropical fruit notes intermixed with a hint of orange zest in a medium to full-bodied, fresh, lively style with the oak component pushed to the background. The wine is full, fleshy, sexy and impressive. This brilliant 600-case cuvee should drink well for 3-4 years."

2013 Buchli Station Chardonnay

"The beautiful 2013 Chardonnay Buchli Station Vineyard (130 cases produced) comes from a vineyard bordering St. Pablo Bay. Copious aromas of orange zest and honeyed citrus are followed by medium to full-bodied fruit notes. This top-flight wine can be enjoyed over the next 3-4 years.

2013 Home Ranch Chardonnay

´╗┐"The single vineyard 2013 Chardonnay Home Ranch Vineyard displays a green-ish hue to its light straw/gold color as well as fruit-flavored notes of spring flowers, quince, ´╗┐honeysuckle, white currants and a notion of tangerine oil. One of the best wines I have ever tasted from Rombauer, this stunning Chardonnay should drink well for 5-6 years. Unfortunately, production was limited to 130 cases.

2012 Rombauer Carneros Chardonnay

"Rombauer's Chardonnay is a good example of what producers could achieve from the vintage. It is a bold yet graceful wine, reliant on creamy oak...it's a rather remarkable winemakeing achievement. A graceful, seductive style, with an emphasis on bold yet subtle flavors, offering a mix of poached pear, honeydew melon and creamy oak notes. Drink now through 2018."

2012 Rombauer Carneros Proprietor Selection Chardonnay

"A seductive style, ultrarich, creamy, layered with jazzy oak and a core of ripe pear, peach and nectarine flavors, all focused and persistent through the long, lingering finish. Drink now."

2012 Rombauer Chardonnay

"Medium-light, golden yellow; earthy, apple and tropical fruit aroma with oaky overtones and a hint of butterscotch; medium-full body; spicy, toasty, green apple flavors with a slightly sweet impression in the mouthfeel; lingering aftertaste. Stylistic with prominent, buttery oak. Highly recommended."

2011 Rombauer Zinfandel

"Medium-dark ruby; attractive, forward, toasty, ripe, red and black fruit aroma with hints of dill, mint and black pepper; full body; big, rich, plush, cedary, berry fruit flavors with a stylistic trace of residual sugar and leaving a plush, slightly creamy mouthfeel; full tannin; lingering aftertast. Highly recommended. 15.9% alcohol. Blended with 7% Petite Syrah."

2011 Rombauer Carneros Chardonnay

"A crowd-pleasing style, openly fruity and nicely oaky, offering an up-front mix of toasty oak and exotic tropical and ripe green tree fruit. Well focused and persistent, this ends ith a touch of lemon peel and spice. Drink now through 2016."

2010 Rombauer Zinfandel

"This wine will be immediately disqualified by a good many Zin lovers for the simple reason that it is slightly sweet, and, while we confess at being a little perplexed by its sugars, it is a fairly deep and well-crafted wine all the same. It smacks of berry-pie filling and vanilla, and it is noticeably hot at the finish, but it is undeniably tasty and rich. Sweet sauced pork ribs or other such savory fare will allow it to show well."

2009 Rombauer Merlot

"This trim and temperate take on Merlot steers away from high ripeness and drama and successfully aims for balance instead. Its slightly underplayed themes of red-cherry fruit are enriched with a bit of vanillin oak, and, if properly firm after its supple beginnings, it is an essentially accessible wine that will hit its peak in but a few years."

2010 Rombauer Chardonnay

"This ripe, exotic style boasts gobs of fruit but also a measure of finesse. Ripe, sweet-tasting flavors of pear, fig and tangerine are intense and focused, leading to a long, clean, lingering finish. Drink now through 2017."
