    Winemaker's Notes:

    Balanced and focused, the wine exhibits aromas of fresh citrus blossom, honeydew melon and slate. The play of freshness and viscosity lifts honeysuckle and crème brulee flavors through the finish. A beam of natural minerality gives structural support to the opulent texture.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A tour de force, with layers of rich, smoky oak, fig, honeydew melon and baked, glazed apple, this weaves together a broad range of flavors, yet for all its size remains elegant and delicate. A roasted marshmallow aftertaste marks the finish. Drink now through 2019.

    The 2010 Chardonnay is a big, rich wine layered with tangerine, apricots, flowers and honeysuckle. The 2010 spent 11 months in French oak barrels (90% new) with lees stirring once a week, both of which add to the volume and density of the fruit. Hints of sweet French oak wrap around the delineated, generous finish.

    Vinous / Antonio Galloni

    Medium slightly hazy yellow. More minerally and precise on the nose than the Napa chardonnay, with lively aromas of lemon cream and flowers. Then dense and juicy in the mouth, with a light touch owing to white peach and mineral flavors. Less plush than the Napa Valley version but finer and longer.
