It's a dry, fairly tannic wine, quite ripe in currants and dark chocolate, with an herbal edge and a firm structure. Aged in 100% new French oak, it impresses for its richness and depth, and could develop over the next 6-8 years." - Steve Heimof

"In my experience, I have found Huge Bear Chardonnay, out of Sonoma ($40) to be a consistent show for Chardonnay in all of its oaked, malolactic glory."
"A rich, creamy chard seemingly destined to accompany your next grilled salmon." - Craig Summers Black
The 2007 Huge Bear Chardonnay brings power and rich textured complexity to the table. You'll find the delicious aromas of ripe apple and juicy pear on the nose wrapped in warm butter. These savory scents are echoed on the palate in addition to a squeeze of citrus and an edge of minerality. This particular wine offers a full-bodied, long finishing Chardonnay experience, that will pair up nicely with the likes of seafood in a buttery sauce, specifically grilled salmon, halibut or lobster.
"Offers just what you want in a Savory Sauvignon Blanc. It's bone dry and mouthwateringly crisp in acidity, with ripe flavors of lemons, limes, grapefruit, sweet vanilla and cinnamon spice,with bracing minerality. A beautiful job, and a sommelier's dream." - Steve Heimoff
"I could really get behind its bold flavors of toasty vanilla, grapefruit and ripe Papaya."
