Toasty with plenty of vanilla and spice notes helping to support clean tea, almond, and beautiful floral aromas. Medium full on entry with a leesy richness, and a bit of sweetness from the oak, the midpalate here shows good verve,full of lemon rind and exotic citrussy fruit flavors framed with a bit of peppery spice. Retaining great focus in the mouth with its lean, firm structure, this is really vivid right through the , long tart finish that features nice minerality with a hint of ginger spice. 93pts

The 2011 Chardonnay Russian River reveals wonderful notes of poached pears, honeyed citrus, a touch of spice and subtle background wood. With crisp acidity, medium body, good purity and a flavorful style, it can be drunk over the next 2–3 years.

Complex and well-built, offering modest flavors and medium weight, with notes of spicy apple and light cedary oak, ending with honeydew melon and honeysuckle accents. Drink now through 2016.

The 2011 Chardonnay has quite a bit more energy than the 2010. This is a decidedly wiry vintage for the 2011 Russian River bottling. Bright floral notes meld into citrus in this striking, vibrant Chardonnay. Anticipated maturity: 2013–2018.

Winemaker's Notes:

Opalescent pale yellow in color, with refreshing aromas of crisp gala apple and lime zest, this chardonnay is mouth-filling and lively from start to finish. A burst of bright stone fruit opens to silky layers of apple, pear and citrus that glide over the palate; yeasty overtones and mineral notes add elegance over a long finish.
