"The 2012 Chardonnay Hudson Vineyard, from one of the great sites in Napa Valley, is also one of the most classic California Chardonnays in this range. Lemon peel, pastry, flowers and sweet spices meld together in a textured, inviting Chardonnay built on texture. A wine of stunning balance and pure voluptuousness, the 2012 boasts fabulous balance and tons of personality. This is pure Hudson, not to mention a drop-dead gorgeous beauty" ~ AG

Wine Spectator 91
"Presents a rich, elegant beam of intense pear, melon, citrus and loamy earth flavors, in a tightly focused style. Gains depth and ends with a persistent aftertaste. Drink now through 2020. 475 cases made." ~ JL

International Wine Cellar 90
"Pale-medium yellow. Aromas of apple, pineapple and vanillin oak are lifted by a floral component. Supple on entry, then a bit unforthcoming in the middle, with subtle flavors of Asian pear, lavender and spices. Finishes with a faint oaky dryness. Very well made but I wanted a bit more concentration and length." ~ ST

" Grower Lee Hudson has reinvigorated this vineyard with new plantings of thoughtfully chosen varietals, clones and rootstock. This fruit was whole-cluster pressed into a combination of mixed-age French oak and concrete eggs. Concrete rounds texture and emphasizes aromatic purity as evidenced by the interplay of brioche and baked apple with asian pear and citrus blossom on the nose. Vibrant, mouthwatering acidity creates mid-palette tension with a creamy mouthfeel for a long yet focused finish. " ~ Winery notes
