Nearly perfect the 2005 Chardonnay Reuling Vineyard boasts fabulous intensity virtually perfect balance and remarkable notes of liquid stones intermixed with orange marmalade honeysuckle white peaches and a touch of spice.

Pale green-tinged color. Aromas and flavors of dried pineapple grapefruit nutmeg and minerals. Hugely rich and dense with a compellingly pliant silky texture and great fullness and volume.

Hugely rich and dense with a compellingly pliant silky texture and great fullness and volume. As rich and chewy as this is there is no sign of phenolic character on the back end. Subtle vanilla and smoke notes from the oak add complexity.

Very ripe and opulent showing sweet pear fig and apple fruit with hints of spice and melon. Keeps a focus on the ripe fruit ending with a persistent aftertaste. Drink now through 2010. 360 cases made. –JL
