The light straw/greenish-colored 2002 Chardonnay Durell Vineyard offers up aromas of lemon oil and vanilla custard in a clean crisp tart manner. The wine opens in the glass to reveal lemons orange rind pineapple and plenty of rocks and minerals. Fresh zesty and exceptionally well-delineated it is a candidate for 5-8+ years of ageability.

Leesy aromas of crushed stone baking spices orange oil and charred oak with a suggestion of light sulfides. Fatter on entry than the McCrea or Dutton Ranch bottlings then big rich and velvety in the middle palate but with a firm acid spine. Not yet hugely complex but I like this wine's cooler flavors of pineapple stone and minerals. Finishes with sneaky length and lingering notes of pineapple menthol and crushed stone. This too seems quite young.
