Tasting Notes

94 points Robert Parker: "exhibits notes of honeysuckle and buttered tropical fruits (particularly pineapples and passion fruit) interwoven with a striking minerality, good acidity, tremendous intensity, and impressive richness. The wine's acidity and structure have more in common with a top Burgundy grand cru than most California Chardonnays. This is a brilliantly executed, full-throttle effort that builds incrementally in the mouth. It should drink well for a decade (one of California longest lived Chardonnays)." (12/03) 91(+?) points Stephen Tanzer: "Green-tinged pale copper-gold color. Restrained aromas of lemon, baking spices, oak char and minerals. Penetrating and complex, with soil-inflected flavors of lemon, stone fruits, smoke, earth, flowers and nuts. Still quite tightly wound and in need of at least a few years of further aging. Finishes long and subtle. With extended aeration, this showed a considerably more glyceral texture, notes of ginger and butterscotch, and a more pronounced minerality." (July/Aug 04)
