2003 Chardonnay, Hudson Vineyard, Napa-Carneros
Vol. 32, No. 2, April-May 2006, p. 33
Medium-light golden yellow; earthy, spicy, baked apple aroma with a note of cinnamon; tight, crisp lemony, green apple flavors with firm acidity; full body; somewhat hard and harsh on the finish; lingering aftertaste. Developed with airing in the glass though could use another year or two of bottle aging. Very highly recommended.
