2011 Stony Hill Cabernet Sauvignon  (Napa Valley) 80

Light in color, light in fruit. This was tart, bright, thin and tangy, with a citrus note in the finish. Better on the nose than the palate, but not really much pleasure here.

1991 Stony Hill Chardonnay  (Napa Valley) 85

Citrus, flowers and orange could be gleaned in the nose. The palate displayed a wine that was previously concentrated, but the citrus finish lacked freshness and fruit. This is fading and requires consumption.

1985 Stony Hill Chardonnay  (Napa Valley) 89

With the color of an aged Sauternes, the oily textured, concentrated wine is low in acidity, with honeysuckly, caramel, citrus peel and butterscotch. When first poured, the wine seemed oxidized, but it improved in the glass after 10-20 minutes. This was quite a wine considering it was a 30 year old California Chardonnay.

1982 Stony Hill Chardonnay  (Napa Valley) 70

Not much here. The texture was rich and oily, but clearly the wine was mostly gone. With effort, some citrus could be found, but it took effort to locate it.

1978 Stony Hill Chardonnay  (Napa Valley) 75

Maderized, with a nutty, sherry and pertrol quality, not much fruit remained.
