2006 Walter Hansel "Cahill Lane" Russian River Chardonnay

SKU #1041156

94 points from Robert Parker: "The light gold-colored 2006 Chardonnay Cahill Lane exhibits a steely, stony nose intermixed with peach, pear, and brioche notes. It is medium to full-bodied, has terrific up-front fruit, decent acidity, and a plump, medium to full-bodied mouthfeel. This is the most concentrated of the first three Chardonnays, but seems to be on a faster evolutionary track than any of the 2005s. A terrific source of sensational Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays made very much in the style of the wines proprietor Stephen Hansel loves the most, white and red Burgundies, this 80-acre estate continues to build on a brilliant track record of high quality wines offered to consumers at sensationally fair prices." (12/07) 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Light, bright gold. Spicy citrus and pear on the nose, with suave minerality adding focus. Riper melon and tropical fruits on the palate. Silky in texture, with medium weight and a hint of white pepper that carries into the finish. The most fruity of this set of chardonnays, offering a very attractive blend of sweetness and energy." (May/June 08)
