Awards, Reviews and other Notes

90+ pts Wine Advocate Issue # 214 Aug 2014
The 2013 Chardonnay has a nose of honeydew, ripe nectarines and poached pears with a toasty undercurrent. Medium-bodied, it fills the palate with lively melon and peachy flavors with a suggestion of creaminess to the texture and a good long finish. Drink it now to 2018.
92 pts Vinous March 2016
Pale gold. A highly expressive bouquet evokes fresh orange, pear, fig, white flowers and smoky lees, with a mineral nuance adding urgency. On the palate, potent orchard fruit and citrus zest flavors pick up a deeper smoky element with aeration. Nicely combines power and finesse and closes very long and taut, with lingering mineral and honeysuckle qualities.
90 pts Wine Spectator 6/15/15
Lithe and open-textured, with green apple accents to the pineapple and floral flavors, finishing with a hint of passion fruit. Lingers gently.



Winemaker Notes

Pale straw with a green tinge. Elegant, fine and complex perfume with vibrant fruit fragrances of pineapple, white peach and delicate fresh ginger and wild mushroom nuances beneath. Yeast and fine oak contribute exciting layers of smoked charcuterie, spicy clove and stone flint. The palate is bright, fresh and luscious with white peach and mushroom notes and a fine-tuned structure integrating the wine's mouth-watering acidity, fruit and oak. Its seamless, suspended palate finishes with a delicate citrus flower note.
