Full bodied, oaky, and deep in color and fruit, but mostly it nose was what caught me; it reminds me of marajuana! That was the kicker. A great chard that balances the oak well

Biodynamic WineFresh and complex, with a crisp citrus edge to the ripe pear and fig notes, with subtle hints of hazelnut and nutmeg unfolding gracefully on the finish. Drink now through 2008. 21,770 cases made.
The Wine News ReviewA classy Chardonnay in every respect, offering enticing aromas of acacia blossom, ripe Meyer lemon, honeysuckle, a touch of minerality and a modest dusting of French oak. Full bodied and elegant on the palate with excellent acid balance and expansive flavors of citrus, pear, quince, green apple and spice, this crisp, complex, food-friendly wine remains lively in the mouth, thanks to the absence of malolactic fermentation and the judicious use of French oak (one-third new); long, lemony close.
Notes on the Grgich Hills Napa Valley Chardonnay 2005 Organically/Biodynamically Grown : CONNOISSEUR'S GUIDE REVIEW: 89 POINTS An interesting blend of toasty components with youthfully tight fruit contributing both energy and unmistakable aromatic limits to the wine at this point in its development. But, development is always the issue with Grgich whites, and this still nascent effort promises to grow over the next three to five years and to follow its predecessors into greater openness with time. For the nonce, it is best served with tangy seafoods. Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine Volume 31 Issue 11: September 2007WINEMAKER NOTES: We organically and Biodynamically grew this Chardonnay at our cool American Canyon and Carneros vineyards, where the grapes developed complex flavors while maintaining a pleasing natural acidity. Our Chardonnay does not undergo malolactic fermentation, which preserves the wine's crispness and acidity to balance its concentrated fruit. This elegant Chardonnay has luscious aromas of baked pear, lychee nuts and wild honey.GRGICH HILLS NAPA VALLEY CHARDONNAY 2005 ORGANICALLY/BIODYNAMICALLY GROWN
