Reticent notes of orchard fruits, white flowers, oyster shell, and crushed citrus all flow to a concentrated, rich, medium-bodied Chardonnay that's beautifully balanced, has a smoking sense of salinity, and delivers a great finish. Do your best to hide bottles for 2-3 years and it should cruise in cold cellars for over a decade. collapse

A highly perfumed bouquet evokes mineral-accented pear nectar, orange zest and jasmine, along with suggestions of saffron and smoky minerals. Energetic, densely packed citrus and orchard fruit flavors stain the palate while showing zero fat. A sexy floral nuance emerges steadily as the wine opens up. Impressively concentrated yet lively in character, with a strikingly long, focused finish that features lingering floral and mineral notes. 20% new French oak. -- Josh Raynolds collapse

There is a steely grip to the sip, where a chalky structure wraps joyous flavors of lime pith and lemon cream. - MATT KETTMANN collapse
