2009 Chardonnay, Russian River Valley
Robert M. Parker Jr.'s The Wine Advocate
February 1, 2012
The 2009 Chardonnay Russian River Valley is a bit rounder and softer than the Sonoma Coast bottling. This is all texture, depth and finesse from the very first taste. Dried apricots, light floral honey and pistachio are some of the notes that wrap around the creamy, inviting finish. The vineyard sources include Dutton, Martinelli, King, Rochioli and Green. Drink: 2012-2017.
