Winemaker's Notes

Intense aromas of lime, baked apple and wet stone combine with a trace of fresh mint and hazelnut. Ripe white peach and apricot dominate the palate entry leading to taut minerals and broader spiced apple flavors. The mid palate sings with rich old vine extract and prominent fresh acidity provides great thrust to the wine's persistent finish. Perhaps our most age-worthy Chardonnay bottling to date.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2003 Chardonnay Chloe exhibits a greenish hue to its light straw color in addition to tropical fruit, orange blossom, lemon zest, litchi, honeysuckle, and white peach characteristics.
Rating: 94+"
94 Points

"Pale yellow-gold. Subdued aromas of apricot, orange and nutty oak. Sweet, broad and ripe; shows less immediate verve than the Isobel but more ripeness and depth of flavor. And there's good firm acidity underneath. The back end is fine-grained, bright, complex and long.
Rating: 90(+?)"
