93(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2013

(aged in 100% new oak; the rest of these chardonnays got around 50%; very little topsoil here):  Bright yellow.  Pineapple, medicinal herbs and crushed rock on the nose.  Very dense and tactile but less immediately fruity than the Upper Barn.  Pineapple and grapefruit flavors are accompanied by strong saline and rocky elements.  In a very dry style but broad, rich and long.  The hardest of these chardonnays to taste today but a wine with considerable potential.
