The 2010 Chardonnay Lolita Ranch is another big, broad-shouldered wine. It has plenty of size but not quite the detail, nuance or sheer pedigree of either the Martinelli Road or Charles Ranch. Today, it comes across as unexpressive and not fully formed. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2020.

Green-tinged gold. A highly aromatic nose evokes orchard and pit fruits, white flowers, licorice and ginger. Generous and deeply pitched, offering exotic peach and floral flavors brightened by juicy acidity. Finishes on a spicy note, with impressive clarity and length.
