TASTING NOTES

Struts out of the glass with confident notes of green guava, honeydew melon, fresh nectarine and lemonade plus touches of struck match, brioche, roasted almonds and candied ginger. Full-bodied, the palate has amazing concentration and energy, giving mouth-coating citrus and tropical fruit flavors, finishing fantastically long and mineral laced.

Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate.

Lemon confit, tangerine, marzipan, white flowers all develop in this overt, plush Chardonnay. This Russian River site, planted with Montrachet clone Chardonnay, yields wines of real distinction. The 2017 was breathtaking when I tasted it from tank prior to bottling. It is all that, and more, today. What a wine! 

Antonio Galloni, Vinous.

Aromas of dried apple, corn husk and white truffle follow through to a full body and rich, opulent flavors. Lightly oily and juicy. 

James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

Big, rich and powerful, featuring concentrated flavors of apple pastry, ripe pear and dried tropical fruits. Very toasty midpalate, with buttery accents on the finish.
