Tasting Notes

94 points from Robert Parker: "The 2008 Chardonnay Cahill Lane (from an old Wente clone) is also a noteworthy bargain. Seriously endowed, full-bodied, and powerful, it is an outstanding success in this vintage. Caramelized orange, candied citrus, and pineapple aromas, a full-bodied mouthfeel, and very good acidity as well as concentration suggest this 2008 will age easily for 7-8 years." (Feb. 2010) 91 points from Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Vivid yellow. Complex scents of smoky lemon rind, pear, melon and minerals, along with notes of anise and iodine. Concentrated, energetic orange and orchard fruit flavors show a suave buttery quality that's leavened by juicy acidity. Blends freshness with vivacity and finishes with very good clarity, cling and subtly sweet persistence. This is drinking well now." (May/June '10)
