93 points Wine Enthusiast: "[$50 list] This well-made, widely appealing wine is inviting in jasmine and orange-blossom aromas, with a tension of energy and focus in its well-integrated acidity. The oak is behaved and quietly complementary, boosting the hints of nutmeg and gingerbread. Alcohol 13.5%. (Jul 2020)"
90 points Lisa Perrotti-Brown (Wine Advocate): "The 2017 Chardonnay Sonoma Coast gives subtle notes of ripe pears, allspice and applesauce with pineapple and lemon juice sparks plus a hint of baking bread. Medium-bodied, elegant and refreshing, it has a lovely creaminess to the texture and touch of nutmeg on the savory finish. Drink: 2018-2022. (Dec 2018)"
Producer notes: "[$50 list] Vibrant aromas of honeysuckle and citrus blossom are balanced with rich flavors of Meyer lemon, pear, lemon custard and wet stone. Subtle oak notes of sugar cookie and vanilla round out a rich mouthfeel with a long, full finish. Barrel aged 11 months in 100% French oak (18% new). Alcohol 13.5%."
