Vinous | Rating: 94The 2015 Chardonnay Dutton Ranch is another rich, ample wine. Here, the interplay of bright minerality, savoriness and structure is quite appealing. Sage, menthol, dried pear and chamomile add layers of dimension to this very pretty, layered Chardonnay. All the elements simply fall into place in this effortless, super-distinctive wine.Author: Antonio Galloni
