($60) Lemon-yellow color. Riper aromas of mirabelle, wet stone, spearmint and roasted oak; a bit higher-toned than the McCrea. Then sweet, lush and seamless but nicely framed by firm acids; in a rounder style but classically dry. Showing more oak spice on the lingering finish.

Huge, buttery, waxy, toasty caramel, and citrus oil aromas jump from the glass of the 2001 Chardonnay Dutton Ranch. Lavishly rich, exotic, and full-bodied, with loads of texture and density, this lusty, heady Chardonnay is one of the most forward Chardonnays in this portfolio. Consumption over the next 2-3 years is recommended.
