International Wine Cellar(2003 Vintage) Rating: 95/100 - As reviewed by International Wine Cellar in Issue 120, May/June 2005 (these vines are now about 23 years of age) Full straw-gold color. Sexy, superrich aromas of pineapple, vanilla, baking spices, smoke and coconut. Large-scaled, plump and rich, with a vibrant orange rind note; wonderfully sweet and opulent without coming across as heavy. Impressively layered, deep chardonnay with great purity and palate coverage.
