    (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."
