94 points Wine Enthusiast: "[$38 list] Deliciously crisp in tangerine, this lovely white features a pear-like creaminess on the midpalate, a complex complement that tangles through structured, nuanced elegance. This boasts fruit from several vineyard designates, including grapes from Zephyr (80% of the mix), Red Car estate (13%) and Mohrhardt (7%). Alcohol 13.8%. (Apr 2021)"

91 points Jeb Dunnuck: "[$38 list] Starting with the 2018 Chardonnay Sonoma Coast, this light gold-hued 2018 offers lots of crushed citrus and stone fruit notes as well as a touch of white flowers and spice, medium body, a light, elegant texture, and a great finish. It's a balanced, elegant, classy Sonoma Coast Chardonnay to enjoy over the coming 2-3 years. Drink: 2020-2023. (7/29/20)"

90 points Josh Raynolds (Vinous): "[$38 list] The 2018 Chardonnay (Sonoma Coast) is a very pretty appellation-level wine. Citrus peel, wild flowers, sage and mint are some of the many notes that add character. The Sonoma Coast Chardonnay nicely balances savoriness, minerality and fruit, all in the mid-weight understated style readers have come to expect from Rec Car, but with a bit less austerity in than in the past. Drink: 2020-2026. (Apr 2020)"
