Beautifully balanced and elegant, the 2011 Dutton Ranch Chardonnay displays a scrumptious mix of lemon curd and orange peel, vanilla, cloves, butterscotch, sweet hay, and a distant touch of lees. Exceedingly pure and refreshing in the mouth and finish, with all components in firm control. This wine is excellent every year, but the 2011 may be my favorite yet. - HK 2013-03-19
