  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 93

    From dry-farmed, 45-year-old Wente clone vines, the 2016 Chardonnay Banfield Vineyard gives up toast, orange blossom, white peach and apricot aromas with minerally and earthy nuances. Medium-bodied with pure fruits in the mouth plus tons of spicy accents, it has good texture and great juicy acidity, finishing long. 376 cases produced.

    The 2016 Chardonnay Banfield Vineyard is the most powerful of the four Arista Chardonnays, made in a distinctly phenolic, savory style. There is quite a bit of depth to the fruit, and yet the tannins are less polished than in the other wines in the range.

    Lithe, with concentrated white fruit and spice flavors, supported by fresh acidity. Ripe melon notes emerge midpalate, followed by a long, cream-filled finish that has some taut savory touches. Drink now through 2025. 248 cases made. — KM
