91 pts - Ken's Wine Guide

"This pale yellow colored Chardonnay opens with an attractive pear bouquet with a hint of oak and On the palate, this wine is medium to full bodied, creamy and rich. The flavor profile is a mild lemon butter with nicely integrated vanilla oak. I also detected a hint of Bosc pear. The finish is dry and its flavors are nicely prolonged. I would pair this very nice traditional styled California Chardonnay with chicken cordon bleu."

91 pts - Rich Cook, WineReviewOnline

"Like its Napa Valley stablemate, this Chardonnay is meant for your table.  The focus is on orange fruit here – tangy tangerine and orange zest are joined by spicy pear, melon and fig.  It’s soft and creamy on the initial sip, followed by lively acidity and a long citrus finish. It’s begging for food -- something rich and creamy over the catch of the day will do just fine."

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Ripe and fruity wine, with tangerine and flowery orange blossom complemented by exotic pear, fig, and honeydew melon aromas and a creamy, toasty oak bouquet. Silky and mouth-filling, this is an impressive style of concentration and intense flavors of tropical fruit, peach and hazelnut that are harmonious and provide a delicious, lingering aftertaste.
