Wine Advocate | Rating: 96The 2007 Chardonnay Three Sisters Vineyard (a terrific site owned by the Martinelli family) reveals a straw color with a greenish hue (always a positive sign) and a wonderful citrus oil, lemon blossom and crushed rock-scented perfume with a subtle hint of oak as well as a distinctive minerality. Full-bodied with good acidity and superb purity, it should drink well for 10-15 years.Author: Robert Parker
Wine Spectator | Rating: 93Wonderful detail, richness and depth mark this Chardonnay, in which subtle scents of wildflower are pure and focused on ripe pear, citrus, tangerine and anise flavors, with subtle hints of honey.Author: James Laube
