It’s classic Chardonnay offering beautiful, Chablis-like white flowers, lemon curd, and white peach notes. With a terrific sense of minerality, a concentrated yet balanced mouthfeel, and a great finish, it’s another terrific white from this team. collapse

The palate is plush, ripe and rich with a wealth of dense, fleshy fruit. Holds long with fresh, rye-like grain and cashews and almonds to close. Quiet esoteric and darn good chardonnay. Drink now. collapse

Fresh scents of peach and citrus fruits. More substantial on the palate than the Frenchman Hills version, with harmonious acidity giving energy and finesse to the lemon curd and chamomile tea flavors. Chewier on the back end than the Roza Hills version, with the finish showing more of a tactile, phenolic quality and a note of nutmeg. Incidentally, Leighton makes these wines with wild yeasts and allows them to complete their malolactic fermentations. -- Stephen Tanzer collapse

Wine Spectator, August 2019
Graceful and sleek, with pear, lemon curd and stony mineral flavors that pick up speed toward the vibrant, steely finish. Drink now through 2022. 316 cases made. — TF

The full-bodied palate is rich and ripe, with an expressive mid-palate that is generous and weighty. The wine lingers long with flavors of creamy lemon panna cotta on the lavish and robust finish. - Anthony Mueller collapse
