Chardonnay 2014
Santa Cruz Mountains, CA, $64.99

“The 2014 Chardonnay is a deep, intriguing wine. Orange peel, honeysuckle, chamomile, honey and roasted almond notes all give the 2014 Chardonnay a decidedly extroverted feel. Readers should expect an intense, phenolic style with plenty of structure. If opened young, the 2014 needs quite a bit of air for some of the reduction to blow off. If that reduction dissipates in bottle, the 2014 might merit a slightly more positive note. 89” Antonio Galloni, Vinous, Aug. 2017
