Tight and taut on the nose with restrained fruit and moderately heavy, sweet, walnutty oak. In the mouth this is big and rich with excellent acids but a thick, almost chewy texture that can be a bit much for many people. This just feels a bit unintegrated with the acid floating above the rich fruit. There are some really attractive peachy undertones on the palate and a touch of honied complexity leading into the finish where this really begins to shine. The finish is long and layered with notes of lemon curd, honeycomb, toasty butterscotch and that continuing undercurrent of peachy fruit. This is a lot of wine, but it’s certainly not for everyone. 89pts

91 Points - Wine Advocate"The 2007 Cold Creek Vineyard Chardonnay was sourced from a site planted in 1973. Over half the blend was fermented with natural yeasts in 55% new French oak and aged sur lie for 9 months. Light gold-colored, it offers up notes of toasty oak, baked apple, and butterscotch. Riper, rounder, and fuller in body than its two siblings, it has outstanding depth, concentration, and length. It may well evolve for 1-2 years and drink well through 2015." -October 31, 2009

WA 91 Pts - According To The Wine Advocate - The 2007 Cold Creek Vineyard Chardonnay was sourced from a site planted in 1973. Over half the blend was fermented with natural yeasts in 55% new French oak and aged sur lie for 9 months. Light gold-colored, it offers up notes of toasty oak, baked apple, and butterscotch. Riper, rounder, and fuller in body than its two siblings, it has outstanding depth, concentration, and length. It may well evolve for 1-2 years and drink well through 2015. Winemaker's Notes - Cold Creek Chardonnay is typified by concentration and intensity from the 30-year-old vines and warmth of the site. This Chardonnay exhibits aromas of apple and lemon with toast flavors on the finish. The Cold Creek Chardonnay is our biggest Chardonnay with weight and body, but the 2007 also shows great balance and a restrained finish.
