94 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The 2017 Chardonnay Bentrock Vineyard is a striking wine that captures the essence of this rugged hillside site on the western edge of the appellation. Bright and finely sculpted, the 2017 is just loaded with character. Lemon peel, mint, white flowers, crushed rocks and intense saline notes build into the mineral-drenched finish. This is such a spectacular debut, not to mention a very pure expression of Bentrock. Drink: 2020-2029. (Sep 2019)"

93 points Erin Brooks (Wine Advocate): "The 2017 Chardonnay Bentrock Vineyard gives up gregarious, mineral-driven layers of ripe quince, white peach, apple pie, lemon cream and accents of nutmeg, chalk and river stone. It's light to medium-bodied with intense, nuanced fruits wound up with tangy acidity and finishing long, layered and textured. Yes! Drink: 2020-2030. (Sep 2019)"
