93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
(93+) The 2011 Chardonnay entices the nose with notes of honeyed apricots, pineapple paste and lemon tart highlighted by hints of cashews and brioche. Medium to full-bodied with a great concentration of tropical and nutty flavors, it has an uplifting line of racy acid and a long finish. Drink it now to 2019+

This medium-bodied wine starts off subtly, offering up hints of grilled pineapple and stone fruit, then grows in intensity on the palate, where potent citrus elements take charge and lead into a long, lean, lemony finish.

Aromas of musky apple and ginger show a trace of sexy reduction. Sweet, supple and harmonious, with bright acidity energizing the flavors of nectarine and oak spices. Tactile, savory chardonnay with noteworthy intensity.

The toasty, smoky nuances are very aromatic up front, displaying a ripe, fleshy quality to the peach, apple and nectarine flavors. Smooth and complex, with plenty of pop from a juicy lemon note. Long finish. Drink now through 2020.
