95pointsDutton-Goldfield 2004 Dutton Ranch Rued Vineyard Chardonnay (Russian River Valley)

Editors' Choice

Four things define this wine. Extraordinarily ripe fruit, high acidity, a terroir-driven minerality, and lots of new French oak. The flavors are of tropical fruits, the ripest white peaches and vanilla cream, baked into spicy pastry crust. The impression is of impossible richness, California Chardonnay at its most opulent, flamboyant limit.
