Wine Advocate | Rating: 90Revealing a creamier texture as well as slightly more color with a green hue, the 2013 Chardonnay Sangiacomo Vineyard reveals more peach marmalade, brioche and creme brulee notes. Thirty percent new oak was used in this ripe, fleshy, tropical fruit-styled white. Bigger and heavier than the generic Sonoma Coast offering, it should drink well for 4-5 years.Author: Robert Parker
