Winemaker Notes

The sweet aromas of lemon pie, soft honeysuckle and light nutmeg are braced by crisp pear and lemon oil notes on the palate. The brightly focused fruit flavors here are a signature of Chardonnays from the Robert Young Vineyard, as is a fine minerality and well-integrated oak. While beautifully structured in a non-malolactic style, this wine also has a creamy, full-bodied texture that lasts through to the finish.

Critical Acclaim

WS 88
Wine Spectator

This tight, spicy Chardonnay offers a minerally edge to the crisp peach and honeysuckle notes. Ends with a pithy peach skin edge.

RP 88
The Wine Advocate

The 2009 Chardonnay Robert Young is a rich, textured wine loaded with tropical fruit, butterscotch, French oak and spices. This is a typical California Chardonny that delivers considerable pleasure for the money. The combination of rich fruit and powerful, insistent minerality works beautifully. Brighter notes appear on the polished finish. As has always been the case, the Robert Young is aged in French oak barrels, with stirring of the lees but blocked malolactic fermentation.
