Yellow-gold in color, this wine offers aromas of sweet pear and lemon custard, with notes of honeysuckle and grass. The palate reveals full-bodied, elegant layers of golden apple, pear and honeydew melon, a gentle accent of lemongrass and crisp acidity on the finish.

Wine AdvocateThe gorgeous 2003 Chardonnay Russian River spent 10 months in 55% new French oak and 45% neutral wood. Its light green/gold color is followed by scents of orange blossoms, marmalade, pineapples, and honeysuckle. This full-bodied, attractive Chardonnay is a treat to drink.

Wine SpectatorA notably rich, buttery, smoky style, with a high toasty oak character and an abundance of ripe pear, hazelnut and hints of citrus and fig. Fans of this woody style will find it especially appealing for its layered complexity and depth. Drink now.
