Issue: Issue 120
($65; five-year-old vines) Cool, subdued aromas of green apple, lime skin, aromatic oils and iodine; distinctly Burgundian. Then large-scaled, fat and sweet but fresh; offers great richness without undue weight. Finishes with real palate-staining persistence. These five-year old vines include clones from Hyde, Hudson Mt. Eden and Calera. Like the Rueling Vineyard wine, the finish here is amazingly long considering the youth of the vines. But then crop levels in both of these vineyards were just over one ton per acre in 2003.

The stunning 2003 Chardonnay Lauren Vineyard reveals a rocky minerality to its citrus oil, orange blossom, leesy, white currant, honeysuckle, and nectarine-filled personality.

Light to medium cloudy gold color with a slight lime tinge. A taut nose of lemon custard, pineapple, nectarine, graham crackers, vanilla spice, and caramel. Excellent viscosity and acidity. Loads of power that finishes on a sustained note.
