Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 89+

Aromas of lemon zest, smoke and caraway seed. Intensely flavored but very tightly wound and backward today. Dense on the palate, with minerally notes of pineapple and grapefruit. Strong acidity gives this serious chardonnay a slightly hard edge. I expect this wine to merit a 90-plus rating after a couple more years in bottle.

Wine Spectator | 94

A crisp and lively Chardonnay with a rich, concentrated, tightly wound band of nectarine, pear, citrus and spice. Gains momentum on the palate, and finishes with a wonderful display of fruit and oak complexity. 2,782 cases made.
