Wine Description

(2008 Vintage)

90 Points, Wine Spectator:

"Fresh and vibrant, with a full-bodied mix of tangerine, nectarine, peach and pear flavors that are intense, complex, layered and cleansing. This holds on to its core fruitiness. Drink now through 2013. 34,050 cases made. –JL" (6/30/2010)

    (2003 Vintage) This clean but uninvolving wine is impossible to fault for error other than its obvious lack of fruity substance, and its essential smallness directs it accordingly to near-term service with lighter fish and chicken fare.

    (2002 Vintage) A bit of toast and hints of earth and mineral lend a little extra range to the otherwise mildly apply themes of this reasonably weighty offering. If wanting for a keener sense of fruity focus, the wine does convey a positive impression of extract and may yet emerge as a more fully filled-out Chardonnay with a year or two of further age.
