The 1994 Chardonnay Gauer Ranch-Upper Barn is a mind-boggling effort. It exhibits a medium straw color with a rich looking, thick texture. Intense aromas of orange blossoms, honey, cherries, and well-integrated, spicy new oak are followed by a lavishly rich, full-bodied, unctuously-textured wine. Gorgeously pure, with layers of fruit, this is a profound wine that should make consumers realize the extraordinary potential possessed by selected California vineyards. As a postscript, I noted a mineral, liquid stone character that emerged from this wine as it sat in the glass. Once again, Helen Turley and John Wetlaufer have produced riveting examples of American viticulture.
*Cellar Selection* Bold, ripe, ultrarich and creamy, loaded with tiers of pear, fig and melon flavors, adding some complexity on the finish with its echoes of anise and spice. A real mouthful of Chardonnay that will do well in the cellar, from a leading California winery. 275 cases made.
