2011 Chardonnay, Hudson Vineyard, Napa-Carneros
Robert M. Parker Jr.'s The Wine Advocate
The 2011 Chardonnay Hudson Vineyard is a brilliant effort in this tough vintage. Gorgeous aromas of hazelnuts, caramelized citrus and orange blossoms are present in this medium-bodied, richly fruity white. With adequate acidity as well as an up-front, precocious, quick-to-mature style, it should be consumed over the next 3-4 years.
