Critical Acclaim: 92 pts Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate.
Winemaker Tasting Notes: The 2018 has a lightly green-tinted yellow-gold color, with white-rose floral notes. It is medium bodied, with notes of mellow tar and matchstick on the attack, then tart green apple, fresh pineapple, and a touch of buttery burnt caramel. Drink now through 2024.
“The barrel sample of 2018 Chardonnay opens with toasty/cedary notes over a core of baked apples, guava and poached pears plus hints of roasted almonds and allspice. Medium-bodied, elegantly played and refreshing, it has loads of apple and baking spice-inspired flavors and a toasty finish”. - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
