Winemaker's Notes

Sourced since 1994. Located in the southwestern reaches of Napa County, where a rare mix of volcanic and marine sediment soils meet to produce a wine of depth and elegance, often touched with high pitched tones of iodine, and an oyster shell like minerality.

Critical Acclaim

"Green-tinged yellow. Precise aromas of orange zest, fresh pineapple, iodine, white flowers and smoky lees. Spicy, high-pitched and penetrating, with palate-staining citrus and orchard fruit flavors and pronounced minerality. Shows outstanding tension and focus on the long, smoke- and floral-accented finish."
95 Points

"Ash, smoke, crushed rocks and white flowers jump for the 2010 Chardonnay Hudson Vineyard. A wine of total grace and purity, the 2010 wraps around the palate with gorgeous intensity. Here the aromas take on shades of white orchard fruit. White flowers and a drop of French oak add lift and volume on the seamless, inviting finish."
