Wine Advocate | Rating: 96A rich, bold, opulent expression of Sonoma Coast is seen in the 2014 Chardonnay Charles Heintz Vineyard, with gregarious notes of ripe apricots, pineapple and guava over butterscotch, creme brulee and cashews. Light to medium-bodied, the palate is packed with decadent tropical fruit and honeyed toast flavors, with a lively backbone and satiny texture, finishing with satisfying persistence. 380 cases were made.Author: Lisa Perrotti-Brown
Vinous | Rating: 93Apricot pit, white flowers, mint and lemon confit are given an extra kick of creaminess and palate texture in the 2014 Chardonnay Charles Heintz Vineyard. Soft, open-knit and inviting, the 2014 captures all the signatures of this great site in its palate feel and weight. What a gorgeous wine this is.Author: Antonio Galloni
JamesSuckling.com | Rating: 93Aromas of flan, sliced dried apple and hot stone. Full body, savory and tangy with a creme brulee and subtle fruit aftertaste. Bigger profile for here. Drink now.Author: James Suckling
