Patz & Hall Chardonnay Mendocino County Alder Springs Vineyard 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Why? Durell vineyards = one of the most prized Sonoma vineyards originally made famous by Kistler Chardonnay. Tastes? An uncommonly dense and rich Sonoma Chardonnay that packs in lots of flavors yet manages to remain elegant and refined. It offers extravagant layers of sumptuous apricot, ripe pear, and baked apple pie shaded by exotic spices and pretty oak shadings. An underlying balance will hold this new wine together to age gracefully over the next 3 - 5 years! Wow, this delicious new wine makes me thirsty just writing about it!!!

The 2004 Chardonnay Durell Vineyardrsquo;s orange blossom-like characteristics are interwoven with plenty of mineral notes as well as a subtle touch of wood. With medium body, good flavor depth and richness, it should drink well for 1ndash;2 years.

Enticing aromas of cedar and sandalwood lead to a rich, unctuous, concentrated core of Asian pear, hazelnut, fig and a hint of citrus. This broad-shouldered Chardonnay will benefit from short-term cellaring, as the finish is long, intense and layered. Best from 2007 through 2011.
