4 stars "Bright golden color. Nose of tropical fruits with notes of honey. On the palate, medium to full-bodied with additional butterscotch flavors. Fresh finish, not too oaky at all. "

"This full bodied chardonnay displays fine underlying acidity and a long finish, with hints of cardamom, anise and hazelnut which add interest to the fundamental lemon-mineral flavors. This wine is considered one of the longest-lived white wines produced in California. In other words, this is not your Aunt Mabel's California Chardonnay. "

92 points "- Aug 2006 - Buttery, with an evolved light gold color, is the 2002 Chardonnay Estate. It is more typically California with less minerality than the 2001, offering big, rich, full-bodied flavors, good acidity, and a judicious touch of toasty oak. " Best 2003-2006
