International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92($40) Rich nose combines roasted apricot, grilled nuts and nutmeg. Large-scaled, dense and rich, conveying an impression of strong extract and lovely vinosity. Peach and baking spice flavors really coat the palate. Finishes with excellent breadth, length and snap, with an intriguing saline nuance.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: May/June 2005
Wine Spectator | Rating: 91A rich, creamy, seductive style that's skillfully balanced, with a mix of ripe pear, hazelnut, fig and apricot, showing off a smoky, toasty edge on the finish.Author: James Laube
Wine Advocate | Rating: 92The 2003 Chardonnay Sbragia Limited Release (2,000 cases) is surprisingly restrained and delicate for this cuvee. Medium to full-bodied, with copious quantities of buttered popcorn, pineapple, orange blossom, and melon characteristics as well as outstanding depth, purity, and balance, it will last for 2-3 years.Author: Robert Parker
