Big yet balanced sums this wine up. Lots of dried apricot and cooked pear character. Full-bodied. So much there. Solid. Phenolic texture. Drink now.
Exhibits a rich core of citrus, ripe pear, honeysuckle, hazelnut and green apple flavors, tightly wound with lively acidity. Ends with a long, persistent finish and a crushed rock minerality. Drink now through 2018. 286 cases made. (JL)
The 2011 Chardonnay CIX Vineyard is the least expressive of these single-vineyard wines. Bright floral notes meld into various shades of citrus. There is plenty of polish, but the CIX doesn’t have anywhere near the level of complexity and/or nuance of the best wines in the range. Today, the CIX appears to still be somewhat of a work in progress relative to the high level that is customary throughout the rest of the range. (AG)
