95 points "A brilliant Chardonnay from this historic producer high in the Santa Cruz Mountains, the 2004 Chardonnay Estate offers a beautiful perfume of subtle pineapple, orange marmalade, buttered citrus, white currants, and wet rocks. In the mouth, it reveals stunning purity, crisp acidity, and a drinkability window of 7-10 years. It is very rich, but surprisingly light on its feet. " Best 2008-2014

94 points "Ultraripe, rich and opulent, yet maintains a sense of balance and proportion, with layers of honey, fig, melon and a hint of marshmallow, ending with a full-bodied aftertaste and a hint of minerality. Drink now through 2012. 1,568 cases made. –JL "
