Outer quote mark Bright yellow-gold. Aromas and flavors of white peach, tangerine and poached pear, with vanilla and buttered toast accents. Broad and fleshy but lively, with a spine of zesty minerality adding lift and structure. The mineral note carries through a very long, broad, honeyed finish. (ST) Inner quote mark (6/2013)

Wine Spectator

K&L Notes

The Richard Dinner Vineyard was planted with Wente Clone Chardonnay vines in 1994, and the cool vintage of 2011 yielded less than one ton per acre of high-quality fruit. The grapes were hand-harvested and whole-cluster pressed before being barrel-fermented and aged sur-lie in 2/3 new French oak for 11 months. From the winery: "The exquisite Chardonnay is lustrous dark golden straw hue and exhibits a nose of white flowers, honeydew melon and stone fruits. Richly textured and elegant, the structured palate sings with succulent flavors of orange blossom, citrus oil and Bosch pear. Notes of butterscotch, custard, white peach and Golden Delicious apple fill the mouth and lead to a seemingly unstoppable finish."
