92

International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 96

Pale greeny-gold color. Musky aromas of minerals, ginger and earth; suggestions of Burgundian funk. Very rich and chewy, with dusty flavors of orange peel and earth. Full, generous and impressively deep. The impression of powdered stone gives the finish a tactile quality.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 126

The 1998 Chardonnay Durell Vineyard is tight and backward. Always the last to be harvested (because of the extremely cool micro-climate), the 1998 possesses considerable force and intensity, with a mineral, citrusy, lemon blossom, orange peel component to its full-bodied richness. It reveals good acidity and power, all of which is harnessed and beautifully balanced. Look for this wine to open with another 12 months of cellaring, and drink well for 5-7 years. (release date 11/00)

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

An elegant style, with subtle, understated fig, melon, anise and toasty oak. The texture is silky, with a long, rich, buttery aftertaste. 2,755 cases made.
