    ($60; the highest in alcohol of these 2003s, at 15.8%; aged in 100% new oak) Bright, pale yellow. Aromas of pineapple, lime, flowers and spices. Glyceral-rich and seamless, with a flamboyant pineapple flavor lifted by pungent spice notes of nutmeg and ginger. From Peter Michael's La Carriere and Belle Cote vineyards.

    The 2003 Chardonnay Quarry Vineyard exhibits gorgeous aromas of white peaches, orange marmalade, brioche, and flinty stones. With a fine texture, full-bodied opulence, and great underlying acidity and freshness, this is a superb Chardonnay to drink over the next 4-8 years.

    Slightly cloudy medium to light gold color with green tinges. Rather tight in the nose with some soap, lemon liqueur, toast, and vanilla spice nuances. Smooth with lots of sweet toasty oak and a good but not great level of fruit concentration. It really needs short term cellaring to shine but all of the components are there for greatness.

Mark Aubert's four Sonoma Coast vineyard-designate Chardonnays - Lauren, Reuling, Quarry and Ritchie - have risen to cult status at a dizzying speed. Production is a limited 4,000 cases and the wines are available via the winery's mailing list. Aubert's career in winemaking reads like a fantasy, with his 1989 start as assistant winemaker at Peter Michael under the tutelage of Helen Turley, to his time at Colgin and Bryant Family. His eponymous wines are exemplary renditions of Chardonnay, replete with the rich bounty of the terroirs from which he sources the fruit. At the same time, they reflect his adept oenological hand, and maintain a focused balance of flavor and purity.

Aubert also makes several Pinot Noirs sourced from the Sonoma Coast as well as a "right-bank" Bordeaux style blend from Napa's Howell Mountain.
