International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 126

($60) Medium yellow. Warm, smoky, soil-inflected nose hints at nut oils, peach and apricot. Voluptuous, fine-grained and seamless, with sweet, lush flavors of nectarine and nut oils. Not yet hugely complex but shows lovely restraint to its sweetness.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 157

Why is it that I always find buttery popcorn, tropical fruit, creme caramel, and almost roasted hazelnuts in the Chardonnays from the Dutton Ranch? The 2003 Chardonnay Dutton Ranch has that and a lot more fruit than is typical. Perhaps the low yields from a vineyard that is known for relatively abundant crops have produced a bit more intensity than usual. This is in-your-face Chardonnay that is not the most subtle wine by any means but Meursault premier cru-like, ripe and heady. Drink it over the next 3-4 years.

Daniel B Trust Rating: 99 Tasted On: 12/01/2005 Drink Dates: 2006-2010

Medium plus yellow colored wine with some green highlights. Quite airy and full aromas of new oak, sweet lemon, vanilla spice, pear, and wax. Lots of acidity props up the wine?s plump slightly alcoholic fruit. Long with attractive chalk flavor at the end. While quite fine, this is really just a run of the mill Kistler Chardonnay. Drink Summer 2006 to 2010.
