Vinous 89 points - The 2014 Chardonnay Grand Reserve adds a bit more intensity and creaminess through the middle. Apricot jam, chamomile, sweet spices and buttery notes wrap around the voluptuous, inviting finish. This is another tasty, budget-friendly Chardonnay.
One of the finest values in Chardonnay in the market is the 2006 Grand Reserve Chardonnay, which is aged 8 months in a combination of French and American oak, and put through malolactic fermentation. It is a cross-appellation blend of 55% from Monterey and 45% from Santa Barbara. Gorgeous tropical fruits, pineapple in particular, as well as honeysuckle and some floral notes jump from the glass of this pure, rich wine that exhibits subtle oak but is dominated by its fruit. Itís a beauty that should drink nicely for several years. 90 Points Robert Parker
