Rating: 84/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. Somewhat reserved aromas of pears and green melons wander wide of the expected varietal mark, and despite a bow to green apples in the wine's flavors, this one is medium-bodied, slightly coarse and drifts to flinty and dried herbs notes in the late going. Time will help but minimally.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Unlikely to improve with further aging.
Paul Dolan Vineyards Chardonnay 2008 750ml90 Points - Wine Enthusiast"A beautiful Chardonnay notable for its food-friendliness. Strikes a firm path toward dryness and minerality, with suggestions of citrus, peach and vanilla. The racy acidity is wonderful. Defines elegance in Chardonnay, at a good price." - Editors Choice.
