The nose is a kaleidoscope of quince, coriander seed, honeysuckle and pastry, continually changing as it spends time in the glass. The palate balances bursts of juicy preserved citrus character with deeper tones of graphite and almond, its flavors continuing to shift and evolve, and it finishes with exceptional energy and length. Wow!

Another fresh, vibrant yet also rich and beautifully textured Chardonnay from this team, it does everything right, offering medium to full-bodied richness, perfectly integrated acidity, and just a rare mix of purity and elegance with richness and length. It’s terrific today yet will benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age, and I have no doubt it will be drinking nicely on its tenth birthday.

The 2018 Chardonnay Banfield Vineyard is wonderfully deep and fleshy. Soft contours give the Banfield much of its immediacy. Tangerine peel, lemon confit, almond, dried flowers and mint fill out the layers nicely. This...   The 2018 Chardonnay Banfield Vineyard is wonderfully deep and fleshy. Soft contours give the Banfield much of its immediacy. Tangerine peel, lemon confit, almond, dried flowers and mint fill out the layers nicely. This creamy, highly expressive Chardonnay has quite a bit to offer. -- Antonio Galloni
