The St. Francis Winery 2008 Chardonnay is a straw-golden color with green-tinged edges and nice clarity. The flavors of this dry, full-bodied Chardonnay are very aromatic and consist mostly of apple, pear, and creamy vanilla. The acidity is strong enough to make the St. Francis Chardonnay quite refreshing.
The Paso a Paso Verdejo 2008 is a deep golden color, almost honey-like with a medium color-depth and nice clarity. The Paso a Paso Verdejo 2008 has some pretty early acidity that leaves quickly; after that the flavors emerge — mostly lemon and some mineral around the edges. The intensity is moderate and smooth; while the wine is dry overall there is a bit of sweetness to the flavor.
The Paso Robles 2008 Sauvignon Blanc from Robert Hall is a bright straw gold with distinct green edges. It's color depth is fairly pale in nature and it has nice clarity. The flavors of the Paso Robles 2008 slightly fruity, but there is also some herby and mineral edges. It's a medium-to-full bodied wine with marked acidity and it is fairly dry.
The 2008 Wyatt Chardonnay is a pale greenish-yellow with clear edges. The nose of the Wyatt Chardonnay is clean with distinct notes of pear, melon, and other tropical fruits. This Chardonnay is a dry, full-bodied wine with crisp acidity and moderate flavor intensity. For a Chardonnay that isn't oaked at all it's hard to avoid the impression that it still tastes a little oaky, but that's countered a bit by the mineral flavors.
Appellation: 20% Monterey County, 35% from Yolo County, 45% Mendocino County
The Cline Viognier is a full bodied, medium-dry wine with acidity that can range widely from flat to crisp, depending on the circumstances in which you drink it. It's probably a bit more flat when drunk alone, but it acquires some nice crispness when paired with the right foods. The flavors are predominantly floral with just a bit of fruit and a nice mineral edge. One important thing to remember is that the Cline Viognier is much better when served cold - when the temperature of the wine goes up a bit the alcohol becomes too prominent, ruining the flavor.
