It was a great pleasure to visit Rajat Parr in Santa Barbara at the beginning of this year and to see some of the extreme sites his team are farming. Since 2011, Raj and his winemaker Sashi Moorman have been producing consistently thrilling Chardonnays and the 2014s may well be their best to date. This wine, which hails from a vineyard planted in 1971 by the pioneering Richard Sandford, is beautiful, opening in the glass with a complex bouquet of lemon zest, tart pear, tangerine oil, subtle hazlenut and a lick of noble reduction. On the palate the wine is concentrated, intense and deep at the core, with great cut and energy through a finish that tingles with minerality. At 12% alcohol this is very far from the caricature of California Chardonnay, and readers who are about to get stung by 2015 Burgundy pricing should give this a serious look. - William Kelley

The 2014 Chardonnay Sanford & Benedict is the most supple and easygoing of these Chardonnays from Sandhi. Yellow stone fruit, flowers, mint and lightly floral honey give the S&B much of its open-knit, welcoming personality. Although not especially complex, the 2014 is delicious and should drink well for another few years.

This is racy and high pitched, showing aromas of nectarine and white peach leading into a salty, sea breeze scents. The aromatics carry through on the palate, showing beautiful tension, a striking sense of minerality and freshness that is almost Chablis-like. This is still very tightly wound, but it unravels nicely with time in the glass. This should continue to perform admirably over the next 5+ years.
