94 points "Minerality is present in the 2003 Chardonnay B Block (606 cases), along with notes of smoky hazelnuts, sweet nectarines, and citrus oil, and a broad, full-bodied finish with lovely underlying acidity. I would not be surprised to see it age nicely for 7-8 years, although it is appealing at present. " Best 2005-2013

90 points "By Stephen Tanzer Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, Jan/Feb 06 ($38) Pale gold. Aromas of apricot, orange peel, honeysuckle and truffle; shows a distinctly carnal, exotic character. Then big, sweet and rich, with mouthfilling peach and orange flavors given shape and extended by a firm edge of acidity. A real fruit bomb of a chardonnay, with a lingering peach flavor. 90 points "
