Failla Hudson Vineyard Napa Chardonnay 2011 (750ML) US Flag In Stock - Limited Qty
Failla Hudson Vineyard Napa Chardonnay 2011 (750ML)
93 WA
"Butter, nectarines, smoke and passion fruit all emerge from 2011 Chardonnay Hudson Vineyard. A rich, viscous Chardonnay, the Hudson is totally alive in the glass. It is fascinating to taste the Hudson next to the other Failla Chardonnays. The 2011 is totally sensual and polished from the very first taste. Hints of mango and tropical fruit reappear on the viscous, oily finish. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2021...93" WA 4/13 "Ehren Jordan is one of those people who are maddeningly talented at many things. Jordan recently left his post at Turley, where he spent nearly 20 years making a dizzying array of superb Zinfandels. At Failla, which Jordan owns with his wife Anne-Marie, the focus is on cool-climate Chardonnays and Pinots, rendered in a range that approximates Turley when it comes to the number of different bottlings. Did I mention Jordan is versed in the classics and is also a licensed pilot? Jordan wants to spend more time at Failla, and I believe it, given the breadth of this range. Frankly, I can’t imagine how Ehren took care of similarly large portfolios at both Turley and Failla while maintaining a sense of sanity. It will be interesting to see how things develop at Failla. The wines are already stellar, as I hope these notes amply demonstrate. Simply put, Failla is a reference point winery for the Sonoma Coast. This is as good as it gets."
