"A big offering, the full-bodied 2005 Chardonnay Private Reserve reveals notions of hazelnuts intermixed with honeyed pineapple, poached pears, and toasty oak. Well-made with good acidity, beautiful richness, and a vibrant, long finish, it should drink well for 4-5 years."
Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate
"The Chardonnay we grow in our vineyards near Yountville amazes me with its richess. The aromas and flavors are big, even expansive, filling the palate with a lushness that I equate with tropical fruits."
-Ed Sbragia, Winemaster
