Fritz Zinfandel Old Vines 98

?The unfined and unfiltered, light gold-colored 2000 Chardonnay Dutton Ranch offers hints of honeyed citrus, butterscotch, and wood in its shy aromatics. It is medium-bodied, with good acidity and freshness, but not much substance behind the attractive attack. It requires consumption over the next 1-2 years. The acid profile is more French than Californian.? ? Rated 87, Robert Parker ?Intense ripe plum and jammy cherry flavors. Finishes a bit hot. Drink now through 2004. 2,500 cases made. (JL)? ? Rated 86, Wine Spectator
