The 2016 Chardonnay Bien Nacido Vineyard Block Uu offers up notes of citrus pith, lime, buttered apples and grapefruit, followed by a medium-bodied, glossy palate underpinned by bright, mouthwatering acids. It has a nice sense of completeness and finishes quite long. It's also quite keenly priced. - William Kelley

Sea salt, preserved lemons, pan-seared apples, plumeria and honeysuckle show on the engaging nose of this bottling from a preferred block in this historic vineyard. The palate plays to the savory side of Chardonnay, offering an oily texture that carries flavors of cashew and marmalade.

Fresh and focused on the nose, aromas of sweet citrus, spiced pear and wildflowers are underscored by distinct mineral and saline-like edge. The palate echoes the citrus and orchard fruit elements from the bouquet, with an elegant beam of acidity gracefully carrying things across the medium-bodied palate from beginning to end. Well balanced and nimble, the flavors gradually recede on the pleasantly long finish. A lovely Chardonnay that can be enjoyed now and over the next 5 years.
