Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, December 2011
The 2010 Chardonnay is utterly impeccable and gracious. It boasts incredible finesse and textural balance in a clean mineral-driven style. Smoke slate citrus and mint are some of the notes that flow through to the finish... The 2010 Chardonnay is utterly impeccable and gracious. It boasts incredible finesse and textural balance in a clean mineral-driven style. Smoke slate citrus and mint are some of the notes that flow through to the finish. This pure unadulterated Chardonnay is simply stunning. It also happens to be very reasonably priced considering the quality. The Chardonnay is fermented in French oak barrels (10%) new and the malo is blocked. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020.

Pale yellow-gold. Sexy leesy nuances add interest to the aromas of peach flowers and minerals. Dense juicy and mineral-driven with strong acidity framing the intense flavors of pineapple lemon mint and minerals. ... Pale yellow-gold. Sexy leesy nuances add interest to the aromas of peach flowers and minerals. Dense juicy and mineral-driven with strong acidity framing the intense flavors of pineapple lemon mint and minerals. Finishes long and clean. Ric Forman notes that his no-malo chardonnay normally begins showing its charm about 18 months after the bottling (this one was bottled in June of 2010) typically revealing hazelnut and creme brulee character over the years. This bottling has a track record for evolving slowly in bottle.

A bold forward nose with aromas of melon meyer lemon minerals and a hint of toast. Luscious and full-bodied on the palate but with ample acidity the wine shows exceptional balance with a clean precise finish. The... A bold forward nose with aromas of melon meyer lemon minerals and a hint of toast. Luscious and full-bodied on the palate but with ample acidity the wine shows exceptional balance with a clean precise finish. The absence of malo and a light touch with the oak treatment allows the vibrant fresh character of this variety to shine. An excellent example of serious Napa Chardonnay at an affordable price.
