Winemaker's Notes

2006 provided an abundance of wonderfully ripe & healthy fruit displayed by the complexity in the Arthur. The nose first reveals aromas of carnation & magnolia followed by a hint of toast & lemon zest. After some time, the bouquet transitions to lemon verbena, cantaloupe & lychee. Wonderfully balanced, the Arthur is round & full on the palate leading into a clean, fresh, lingering finish. This incredible length suggests pairings of shellfish & ripe cheeses, or cellaring for 3-5 years.

"Gently smoky pear, quince and Meyer lemon aromas are complicated by lees and sweet butter. Brisk and focused, offering vivid lemon, lime and yellow apple flavors. Gains energy on the long, stony finish, which repeats the tangy citrus qualities. This very nicely balanced chardonnay was raised 50% in cask (15% new) and 50% in stainless steel."
Stephen Tanzer'sInternational Wine Cellar

"Supple and silky in texture, with delicately spicy overtones to the pear and beeswax flavors, lingering well on the finish. Drink now through 2011."
