93pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2015 Chardonnay is a little reticent to begin, slowing unfurling to reveal lemon tart, apple pie and nectarine notions with hints of honeyed toast, cashews and orange blossoms. The medium-bodied palate is refreshing and elegantly styled with many citrus and stone fruit layers accented by savory suggestions and a satiny texture, finishing long and mineral laced.

92pts Wine Enthusiast

There's a note of barrel influence on the nose, a heartiness of oak that weaves within the greater whole as the wine develops. Smooth, rounded richness, a mix of baked apple and hazelnut, provide a textured balance of flavor within lovely highlights of lemongrass and ginger.

Winemaker Notes

Classic floral notes of chamomile and honeysuckle along with green pear, honeydew melon, papaya, granny smith apple and kumquat abound in this chardonnay. Rich and full upon entry, there is a tension between the creaminess and the mouthwater - ing citrus, which lead to a long, luxurious and powerful finish.
