International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 114

($60) Less bright yellow than the Hudson. Reticent, pure aromas of minerals, menthol and truffle. Concentrated, precise, minerally and tactile, but still tightly wound. Very juicy, dry and sharply delineated chardonnay, finishing quite long and a bit austere. Offers terrific potential. From very poor soils, notes Kistler, who says the structure of this wine resembles that of the McCrea.

A brilliant effort, the 2001 Chardonnay Vine Hill Vineyard is tightly-knit, but full-bodied and powerful, with an oily texture buttressed by considerable acidity. Citrus oil, buttered tropical fruit, mineral, and roasted nut characteristics are present in this gorgeous offering. Full-bodied, pure yet well-structured, this terrific effort will drink well for 5-8 years.

Extremely concentrated flavors - almost unbearably so. Too extracted and out of balance. Intense meyer lemon flavor overpowers the acidity and mineral elements. This lacks the finesse my last bottle had. It was one of those rare times when I had to dilute the wine with a little water - and when I did, it immediately improved.
