Full-bodied yet vivid and expansive with lightness and energy on the palate. Eye-opening acidity. It goes on for minutes. A great white, as always. Drink or hold.

Chalky, zesty and effortlessly complex, with a briney, iodine-like note, stylish oak and a freshness that lingers on the palate. 2018-26.

Penetrating, multifaceted aromas of lime zest, stone fruits, spring flowers, spearmint and baking spices, plus an element of leesy complexity. Wonderfully concentrated, intense and dry, with its white peach, menthol and mineral flavors conveying a powerful tactile impression of extract. This urgent Chardonnay boasts lovely creamy richness but with its bracing, Riesling-like acidity (7.9 grams per liter!) and powerful minerality, it's like chewing on a rock today. This remarkably complex, ageworthy Chardonnay was made from three separate picks over a period of two weeks, according to winemaking director Vigil. (12.9% alcohol) -- Stephen Tanzer

It's more exuberant than the 2018 or any of the White Stones I tasted next to it. The flavors are intense and pungent, with volume and length. The vines are organically farmed, which is not easy in the zone, mainly because of the ants! That has a great effect in the yields, which are reduced, and the juice is very concentrated but shows superb balance. As with the others, this is more in the style of the 2015, whereas the 2018 follows the path of the 2016. 6,000 bottles produced.
