A big, rich, balanced Chardonnay with intriguing aromas of apricots, pear, honey, butter, hazelnuts, and spices. Rich and intense on the palate, with gorgeous depth.
Great value! This barrel fermented, full bodied Chardonnay has mouth filling citrus fruit and a palate cleansing, bright finish. It will become richer and more complex with age.
The citrus/apple notes in the aromas mesh nicely with the stone fruit and tropical flavors. The fruit notes in the aromas and flavors will evolve into more spices and nuts.
The flavor profile for this well structured Chardonnay is in the subtle pear and apple realm with accents of lavender and anise from the time in barrel. There are citrusy notes of lemon and orange along with a minerality. Additional flavors and aromas will emerge over time. 94 points Antonio Galloni's Vinous; 92 points Robert Parker.

End of Vintage. Please see the current release.
A lean, stuctured Chardonnay with a richness that is evolving. Beautifully balanced. Scored 92 points out of 100 from Antonio Galloni'sVinous.
A wine of balance and restraint with underlying power. The signature flinty soil character is evident accenting the citrusy flavors and aromas.
For a region known for its cool climate fruit, Santa Rita Hills appellation is HOT right now, and global warming has nothing to do with it. An amazing location with the perfect combination of soil, climate and exposure, it set the standard for the region.
A beautifully balanced Chard. Lovely aromas of apricot, lavender and caramel ebb into bright flavors of lemon/lime, and a fresh, spicy finish with vanilla, clove and honeydew melon. The richness and texture are increasing in the bottle. 94 points Vinous; 92 points Robert Parker.
A combination of a rich, viscous texture with slight tropical fruit flavors backed by gentle toasty oak, make this Chardonnay a knock out. Scored 93 points from Wine Enthusiast Magazine, 91 points from Antonio Galloni's Vinous.
