Robert Parker | 98-100

The 2016 Chardonnay Sugar Shack Estate is opulent straight out of the gate, with stunning orange peel, candied ginger, nutmeg and ripe apricot with touches of cashews and croissant. The full-bodied palate explodes with expressive bread, nut, spice and stone fruit layers, marked by a lively line of acid that lifts the fruit and gives a long, gregarious finish. - RP

We set out to move a mountain; to narrow the stylistic differences between Napa and Sonoma Chardonnays.  The clone specifically selected for our Rutherford site, Sugar Shack, is expressive of its terroir and can maintain high acidity levels.  These qualities allow the resulting wine to express characteristics similar to its Sonoma cousins. - Aubert website
