"The 2005 Chardonnay Napa reveals a light gold/green color along with scents of nectarines, quince, orange marmalade, brioche, and a leesy element. It possesses terrific acidity, not quite the complexity or mouthfeel of the Sonoma Coast offering, but a big, bold, smoky style that demands consumption over the next 5-6 years."
Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate
"Harmonious, smooth and creamy, with delicate fig, vanilla, melon and spice, gaining complexity and length and ending with a touch of anise and cedary oak. Drink now through 2010."
