93 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The 2017 Chardonnay Golden Slope shows a slightly richer side of the Sta. Rita Hills. Tangerine peel, lemon confit, almonds, a touch of new oak and tropical inflections all meld together in a wonderfully pliant, sensual Chardonnay endowed with tons of appeal. Extroverted and racy, the Golden Slope will drink well right out of the gate. Drink: 2020-2027. (Sep 2019)"
92 points Erin Brooks (Wine Advocate): "The 2017 Chardonnay Golden Slope gives bright aromas of lime peel, hazelnut and petrichor with deeper layers of honey toast, Greek yogurt, apricot and white flowers. Medium-bodied and lightly creamy, it has good intensity in the mouth with tangy acidity and a long, layered finish. Drink: 2020-2030. (Sep 2019)"
