94 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The 2019 Chardonnay Estate is positively stellar. Rich and ample, the 2019 Estate shows just how compelling the vintage is for Chardonnay. Chad Melville coaxes unreal complexity from his vineyards. The 2019 is ample, concentrated and full of personality. Lemon confit, almond, flowers and tropical accents linger. The Estate spent 11 months in steel with no stirring or racking, except to bottle. Drink: 2021-2029. (Oct 2021)"

93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The base Chardonnay is always worth checking out. Lots of spiced citrus, toasted bread, and salted nut notes emerge from the glass of the 2019 Chardonnay Estate Sta. Rita Hills. Medium-bodied, it has a round, layered, sexy texture and a great finish. It has some classic Sta. Rita Hills salinity on the finish and will keep for 7-8 years if stored properly. Drink: 2021-2029. (8/26/21)"
