Neyers Carneros 2009 Chardonnay, $23.99-$29.99, 92 points, has found a niche between citrus and pome, a valued balance found in its cooler AVA (American_Viticultural_Area) of Carneros, but done so well. Neyers has managed a typical Californian creamy, yet crisp wine with power and flavor, but is restrained.
The light lemon-lime color is also the aroma, but adds a bit of oaky caramel, all of which carry onto the palate, yet there it adds gentle flavors of quince, and finishes wonderfully long with a bit of ginger.
