92 points "Wine Avocate 89-92 Pts. A new offering, the 2002 Chardonnay Hirsch Vineyard reveals aromas of lemon zest and earth along with big, rich, full-bodied flavors revealing hints of honeyed grapefruit, lemons, and white peaches. Built for the long haul, with considerable intensity, it should drink well for 7-8 years. " Best 2003-2011

94 points "By Stephen Tanzer Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, May/Jun 05 ($60) Pale-medium yellow. High-pitched aromas of orange zest, nutmeg, talc and dusty stone, with a suggestion of exotic fruits. Dense and chewy but fine-grained and bright, conveying a strong impression of extract. With its deep, intense fruit and mineral flavors, this chardonnay offers considerable immediate appeal, but it also possesses firm backbone for mid-term aging. Very long, palate-dusting finish. "The Hirsch and Hudson vineyards produce very tasty grapes when they get thoroughly ripe," notes Bixler. This one offers glorious chardonnay fruit. 94 points "
