92pts James Suckling
Nice, toasty oak delivers a spicy and creamy layer, together with lemon pastries, fine lees and stones. Rich, creamy and full-bodied palate, showing a nice, flavorful side of Napa chardonnay. Yet, it remains fresh, with medium acidity. Drink now.
From the standout 2021 vintage the Napa Valley Chardonnay is showy, serious and seductive. Green pear, white flower, vanilla custard and a hint of flint on entry, the palate expands with creamy texture and a touch of butterscotch. Framed with native acidity and integrated oak this wine leaves you with a long, languid tail.
