Greenish gold. Pungent herbs, nectarine, lemon pith and iodine on the nose. Dense, sappy and savory, with a distinctly spicy quality to its pit and orchard fruit flavors. A serious, densely packed chardonnay that shows zero easy sweetness. Finishes firm, stony and dry, with resonating spiciness and superb length.

The least expressive and exuberant wine of this group, the 2008 Chardonnay Parmelee Hill Stone Flat Vineyard has shut down more than its siblings and is tighter and less exuberant, but it exhibits super intensity. Given how well all these wines performed, I am not surprised that one or two bottles seemed more restrained and muted than others.

Intense, with rich layers of smoky oak, ripe fig, melon and roasted marshmallow. Full-bodied, with touches of nutmeg, anise and roasted fig. All in all very complex and distinctive.
