Wine Spectator | Rating: 90Seductively creamy, toasty, mocha-shaded oak stands apart from the core of firm, vibrant apple, citrus, pear and honeydew flavors, but this is coming together nicely. May be better in a year or two. Drink now through 2020. 1,055 cases made.Author: James Laube
Vinous | Rating: 93The 2014 Chardonnay Stone Flat Vineyard is distinctly mineral, earthy and savory in this vintage, with the fruit pushed more into the background. Graphite, autumn leaves, herbs and chamomile add aromatic intrigue. The Stone Flat is distinguished by its striking aromatic complexity and expressive soil-driven tones.Author: Antonio Galloni
Wine Advocate | Rating: 95With an intense nose of grapefruit peel, green mangoes and apricots, the 2014 Chardonnay Stone Flat Vineyard has spicy suggestions of coriander seed and ginger plus a waft of toast. Full-bodied, rich and pleasantly oily, it delivers tons of spice and tropical flavors with epic length.Author: Lisa Perrotti-Brown
