(2013 Vintage) 2013 Unfiltered Chardonnay reflects the opulence and profound intensity of the vintage with rich complex and vibrant fruit flavors balanced by savory barrel fermentation influences. The aromas of grapefruit, honey, vanilla, brioche and apricot are fresh and inviting. The palate is intense and powerful with rich fig and pear fruit flavors balanced by subtle creamy oak, nutty savory notes and a long lingering finish.

Robert Parker(2001 Vintage) "The compelling 2001 Chardonnay Unfiltered possesses a restrained but powerful bouquet of citrus oils intermixed with lemon blossoms and buttery popcorn presented in a full-bodied, layered, textured style with gorgeous richness. It is a powerful, intense Chardonnay that is performing far better out of bottle than it did from barrel last year. It will drink well for 6-7 years."
