    Winemaker's Notes:

    #25 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2009

    Frequent stirring of the lees during barrel aging added a creamy texture to an already full-bodied wine, making for a rich, plush mouth feel, balanced with vibrant acidity. Powerful aromas of spiced apple, pear and pie crust join lemon-cream and toasty oak on the palate, adding up to a compelling and thoroughly satisfying experience for true Chardonnay lovers.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Wonderful perfumed aromas fold over to the palate, which is full-bodied and ultrarich without being heavy, delivering tiers of ripe fig, apricot and green apple, shaded by spicy, toasty oak. Better than previously reviewed. Drink now through 2012. 2,448 cases made.

    Further evidence of the paradigm shift that is taking place in the making of California Chardonnay can be found in this stunning bottling from a winery not heretofore renowned for such efforts. Starting with aromas that are both youthfully tight yet accessible at one and the same time, the wine smells and tastes of roasted lemons, vanilla and creme brulee with hints of clover honey. Its bright, rich passage across the palate keeps it lively and lengthy, and there is every chance that bottle age will see this exceptional effort reach even higher.
