December 200797 The 2005 Chardonnay Quarry Vineyard is an amazing wine, with wonderful acidity and beautiful notes of lemon oil, orange rind, and crushed rocks, which is not surprising given the name of this vineyard owned by Peter Michael, who canceled the contract with Mark Aubert for 2006. The wine is full-bodied, stunningly rich, pure, and expansively textured, while all the while remaining light on its feet. It should drink well for 5-7 years.
July 31, 200795 Pure, ripe, delicious fruit is at the center of this beauty, with a medley of ripe pear, apple, melon and light floral and spicy notes. For all its richness and fruity qualities, this is elegant, refined and delicate. Drink now through 2011. 223 cases made.
