Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, December 2000
The 1999 Chardonnay Private Reserve (20000 cases) enjoys about 75% new oak. It is a structured smoky buttery fat effort with oodles of honeyed fruit as well as outstanding ripeness all wrapped in high quality wood...

Full-bodied and dense this exceptional wine will drink well for 1-2 years.

The smoky toasty figgy buttery aromas of this enticing white lead to similar rich flavors running deep and persistent picking up notes of pear apricot citrus and melon. Finish zooms on and on. Drink now through 2004... The smoky toasty figgy buttery aromas of this enticing white lead to similar rich flavors running deep and persistent picking up notes of pear apricot citrus and melon.

Stephen Tanzer's IWC - Stephen Tanzer's IWC, June 2001
Reticent nose hints at smoky oak butterscotch and bacon fat. Concentrated thick and mouthfilling nicely freshened by sound acidity. Rather youthful chardonnay with a notably long lemony subtle aftertaste. 91 points
