International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 174

(from the highest-density planting in the area, at 3,700 vines per acre, according to Andy Smith): Wild, smoky aromas of musky citrus fruits and minerals. Plusher and silkier than the Isobel, showing more obvious ripeness to its stone fruit and vanillin oak flavors. Finishes broad and full, with lingering notes of vanilla and nuts. Smith chose the best barrels to make this wine, and they happened to include a high percentage of new oak, including a lot of Chassin barriques .

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 210

The 2011 Chardonnay Russian River is a blend from some of the finest Sonoma vineyards, including Ritchie, Lorenzo, Hyde, DuMol and Heintz. Largely made from the Old Wente clone of Chardonnay blended with some of the Mt. Eden clone, it was barrel-fermented and aged 14 months on its lees with no lees stirring and only about 30% new French oak used. A light green/straw color is followed by terrific aromas of white peaches, pineapples, brioche, and a hint of creme brulee. Full-bodied with beautiful purity and texture, it is the equal of any Chardonnay selling for twice the price. It should drink well for 5+ years.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

Dense and concentrated, this is a bit coarse in texture, with gripping tannins, offering intense flavors of ripe peach and nectarine.
