The 2011 Chardonnay Hudson Vineyard is rich, deep and exuberant. Juicy apricots, flowers, spices and butter take shape beautifully in this seamless, exotic beauty. The 2011 has put on considerable weight since I tasted it last year, but it still has plenty of minerality. Expressive white floral notes add lift on the finish, rounding out this gorgeous Chardonnay nicely. The 2011 spent 18 months in French oak barrels, 47% new. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2018.
