91pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

One-hundred percent barrel fermented and aged for eight months in French oak barrels (32% new), the 2018 Chardonnay Mannequin offers spiced apples and poached pears notions with nuances of baking bread, toasted almonds and honeycomb. Full-bodied, the palate reveals expressive apple and pears flavors with a satiny texture and plenty of baking spices coming through on the finish. 

Winemaker Notes

Pale gold in the glass, opulent aromatics of Meyer lemon, vanilla creme, & sweet oak are complemented by subtle notes of jasmine, gardenias & caramel. The layered palate is replete with ripe stone fruit, melon, lemon curd & hints of roasted almond, grapefruit pith & white pepper. The finish is long & rich with a tapering young coconut flavor.
