Ultimate Beverage Challenge 89 points - Clean minerals and lightly buttered toast create warm aromas in this pale canary yellow wine. The soft texture matches the ripe fruitiness that coats the palate. Strong herbs and toast flavors fill the midpalate for a rich finish. (Jun 2016)
Wine Advocate 87 points - The two Chardonnays are nearly identical in quality despite the enormous difference in price. The value is the 2013 Chardonnay North Coast, which exhibits ripe pineapple and honeysuckle notes in a moderately endowed, mid-weight, elegant, fresh style with virtually no oak in evidence. Drink now-2017. (Dec 2014)
Peach, pear and pineapple fill the nose of this Chardonnay. On the palate the wine is creamy and round with luscious flavors of lemon and pear that harmonize with notes of vanilla bean and spice. The wine has bright acidity and long, lingering finish.
