2002 Chardonnay, Hudson Vineyard, Napa-Carneros
Dec 2004-Jan 2005
Vol. 30, No. 6, p. 114
Medium-light golden yellow; attractive, intense, toasty, buttery, ripe pear aroma with notes of toasted hazelnut; full body; crisp, lemony, pear and green apple flavors with good depth; well balanced and structured; slightly harsh on the finish with a hint of bitterness; lingering aftertaste. Deserves another year or two of bottle aging. Very highly recommended.
