2011 Upper Barn Vineyard Chardonnay
Wine Club Exclusive
The Upper Barn is our most transporting Chardonnay, and the 2011 vintage is particularly expressive. Orange blossom, peach and chalk flood the nose, while the palate mirrors those flavors with a savory, underpinning note and pronounced mineral and spice elements in the lengthy finish. The texture is filigreed, exhibiting that delicacy of fruit and a river rock quality — the transparency that only age and a superb site can bring to a wine.
95 points, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, May 2013
