2006 Chardonnay, Hudson Vineyard, Napa-Carneros
Robert M. Parker Jr.'s The Wine Advocate
December 1, 2008
The three single vineyard Chardonnays are all from top sites, the Hudson and Hyde vineyards in Carneros, and the Russian River's Ritchie Vineyard. The 2006 Chardonnay Hudson Vineyard exhibits aromas of green apples, quince, white currants, and honeyed citrus in an impressive, medium to full-bodied style with beautiful fruit, a subtle dosage of wood, and a heady finish. Drink it over the next several years.
