($175) Bright, green-tinged yellow. Wonderfully complex but youthfully restrained nose hints at stone and citrus fruits, butterscotch, smoke and minerals. With its powerful stony minerality and tactile impression of extract this conveys a drier impression than the 2008 chardonnay that preceded it. Densely packed, energetic and tightly coiled chardonnay with a tannic element that reminded me of a red wine. Very closed wine, just short of bitter on the finish today and in need of at least a couple years of patience. But this should age for a long time. The crop level here was about 1.5 tons per acre following thinning, which is normal for this terraced vineyard in Napa
