A crisp, balanced Chardonnay that developed significantly with time in the glass. Initially closed and seemingly short, it opened with time to reveal an excellent pineapple- and mineral-tinged character with a nicely submerged, subtle level of oak. A high acid wine that will probably continue to develop, but delicious now if not served too cold. - HK, GK 2001-05-02
