Pale yellow-gold. Multidimensional, sulfidey nose combines tangerine, orange marmalade, butter, hazelnut, minerals and iodine. Dense and thick but still tightly wound and quite light on its feet; a very young wine with a superb spine of acidity and great precision. Suggestions of ripe peach and nuts in the mouth. Very long on the finish but still quite backward; the '98 version from this vineyard is more extroverted, notes Kistler.

The 1999 Chardonnay Hudson E-Block is pure, leesy, tropical fruit, smoky, earthy, exotic offering with full body, and less definition than the other 1999s. It exhibits a smoky, in-your-face style. While it does not have the aging potential of its siblings, for drinking over the next 3-4 years, it is a lavishly rich, exotic effort.

Intense and concentrated, yet a bit restrained in its presentation of fruit, offering rich fig, melon and lemon-custard pie flavors, shortening up on the finish. 528 cases made.
