Kongsgaard Chardonnay Napa Valley The Judge 2010
Score: 96 points
Release Price: $175
This makes a profound statement about Chardonnay style. Openly rich and smoky, yet graceful and polished, with roasted fig, honeysuckle, baked apple, marshmallow and cinnamon-tinged spices, gaining depth and length. Drink now through 2019. 340 cases made.—James Laube

A smooth style, with espresso, dried currant, cedary oak, anise and loamy earth, ending with a long, tannic finish that offers notes of dried herb, sage and black tea. Best from 2014 through 2024. 280 cases made.—JL
