93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "[$50 list] Starting with the 2018 Chardonnay Sonoma Coast, this classy 2018 has notes of musky pineapple, crushed citrus, and white flowers as well as a kiss of salty minerality. It has bright acidity, beautiful balance, and is just a classic, elegant Sonoma Coast Chardonnay that does everything right. (5/21/20)"

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "[$50 list] Bursting with fresh, salty acidity, this appellation wine conjures the coast from which it comes, offering beguilingly soft layers of elegant richness. Apple, pear, nutmeg and a whiff of lemon meringue play well on the palate, with plenty of length and breadth to impress. Alcohol 13.5%. (Oct 2020)"

92 points Wine Spectator: "[$50 list] Lithe and juicy, featuring well-framed flavors of pear, apple and ripe melon, packed with fresh acidity. Pastry and allspice notes show on the engaging finish, accented by hints of dried savory. Drink now through 2024. (8/31/20)"

92 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "[$50 list] The 2018 Chardonnay (Sonoma Coast) is bright, floral and very nicely lifted, with lovely citrus confit and floral character. White pepper, mint, crushed rocks and sage add nuance to this striking, translucent Chardonnay from Flowers. The energy and tension of the year really comes through. This is such a gorgeous wine, especially in its peer group. Drink: 2020-2028. (Apr 2020)"

90 points Lisa Perrotti-Brown (Wine Advocate): "[$50 list] The 2018 Chardonnay Sonoma Coast has pretty aromas of white peach, candle smoke, toast and flinty touches with an uplift of floral perfume. The palate is light-bodied and fresh with restrained fruits and a mineral-driven finish. Drink: 2020-2023. (Sep 2020)"

Producer notes: "[$50 list] Intense and fresh aromas of citrus and white flower are balanced with pure fruit flavors and chalky texture. Delicate oak notes are combined with a persistent acidity, minty graphite in the palate, leading to a refined, long and juicy finish. Alcohol 13.5%."
