95 Points Robert Parker
The 2006 Estate Vineyard Chardonnay was barrel-fermented and aged on its lees in 40% new French oak for 18 months. Light gold-colored, it exhibits a superb bouquet of mineral, toast, butter, hazelnuts, pear, and a hint of tropical fruits. Creamy textured, it has layers of flavor, excellent integration of oak and acidity, and a fruit-filled finish. It should blossom for several more years and drink well for a decade.
