Winemaker's Notes

Pale lemon yellow. Penetrating aromas of ripe citrus, honey and flint with a subtle edge of hazelnut. Immediate intensity of wet-stone minerality and citrus oil leads to great natural extract and palate richness. Maintains purity of fruit and finesse to the slow-building finish, which features perfectly integrated yet taut acidity and persistent length.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2004 Chardonnay Russian River, a blend of fruit from the Heintz, Ritchie, and Hyde vineyards, is a full-throttle, honeyed, citrus-smelling wine with full body, loads of fruit, a hint of white peaches, and good minerality.
Range: 91-94"
94 Points

"Smooth, ripe and polished, with fleshy honeysuckle, melon and fig notes that turn spicy and elegant on the finish, where the flavors build intensity."
