94 points Erin Brooks (Wine Advocate): "The 2018 Chardonnay North Slope Vineyard is scented of toast, flit and roasted almonds with a core of baked apples and touches of honey. The medium-bodied palate is fresh and satiny, slowly unfolding its savory flavors and finishing very long. 910 cases produced. Drink: 2020-2026. (Sep 2020)"

92 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The 2018 Chardonnay The North Slope Vineyard is one of the more overt, textured wines in this lineup. Apricot, orange peel, spice and butter infuse the 2018 with attractive layers of nuance. Silky, open-knit and super expressive, the 2018 will drink well right out of the gate. Readers should expect a generous, unctuous style. Drink: 2020-2028. (Apr 2020)"
