90pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2017 Chardonnay Sonoma Coast went through full malolactic and was aged for five months in 30% two- to four-year-old French oak. It opens with toasty oak and baked apples notes over nuances of lemon tart, baked peaches and acacia honey. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers loads of oak-laced stone and citrus fruit flavors and a zesty lift to the finish. A little old-skool, but nicely done! 2,150 cases produced.
LOLA Sonoma Coast Chardonnay is pale gold in color with flavors of tropical fruits and citrus, complimented by delicate floral aromas and a bright crisp mouth-feel. A portion of this wine is aged in older oak (going through partial malolactic fermentation), to provide a caramelized richness to accent the aromatics and palate.
