94 points – Jeb Dunnuck ~ “Readers looking for a classic Russian River Chardonnay that has the textbook richness of the appellation yet stays fresh and vibrant will love the 2018 Chardonnay Russian River Valley. Coming from a mix of the single vineyards and aged 8 months in French oak, its lighter gold color is followed by a great nose of buttered pineapple, tart citrus, white flowers, and a kiss of honeysuckle. It’s aromatic, has great purity, is medium-bodied, and finishes with bright acidity. In short, it’s a terrific Chardonnay that will evolve for 5-7 years.”

92 points – Vinous Media ~ “The 2018 Chardonnay Estate, a blend of several parcels across the property, is a terrific introduction to these wines. Lemon oil, white flowers, almonds, sage and mint give the 2018 lovely aromatic nuance to match its mid-weight, gracious personality. Drinking window: 2020 – 2026”
