International Wine Cellar Author: Josh Raynolds Issue: Issue 156

Bright, pale yellow-green. Pungent flinty minerality, underripe apricot and brown spices on the nose. Plush and rich but with terrific cut and definition to the stone fruit flavors. Best today on the rising, extremely long finish, which displays almost salty acidity and a brisk grapefruit note. Kongsgaard believes that this wine has more fat to buffer its tannins than the 2008 Judge, and that it will be best for medium-term drinking.

The 2008 Chardonnay The Judge is exquisite. Full-bodied with layer upon layer of ripe stone fruits, crushed rocks, and floral notes, it is a honeyed, super-rich Chardonnay displaying a hint of tropical fruits in the long, 40-second finish (a remarkable length for a Chardonnay). This brilliant effort should last for 8-10 years.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

A delicate, understated style, with notes of green apple, pear, spice and light cedary oak leading to a full body. Flavors slowly build on the finish, where this white's minerally attributes shine.

On the same night, drunk after his regular Cuvee. More of everything than his regular Chardonnay. Needs more time to develop the usual secondary flavors that The Judge is known for, like tropical fruits. Long finish.
