As is the case with the Rued Vineyard Chardonnay from Dutton-Goldfield, I think I like the 2011 Walker Hill even better than the 2012. Complex, beautifully focused nose and flavors of ripe lemon and orange melded with sweet spice and a mineral grip. Perfect level of bracing acidity. Seamlessly flavorful mouthful from start to finish. One of my favorite D-G Chardonnays to date. - HK 2015-02-13
