It's certainly the most exotic Chardonnay in the lineup, with a complex bouquet of Meyer lemons, flower oil, toasted spice, candle wax, and honeyed citrus. Rich, full-bodied, and stacked on the palate, it has loads of fruit, vibrant acidity, and a great finish. It's another powerful, concentrated Chardonnay.

Medium-bodied, it's silky, bright and uplifted in the mouth with loads of mineral character, seamless freshness and a long, delicate finish. - Erin Brooks

Jasmine, white pepper, mint and lemon peel give the 2018 a brilliant aromatic upper register. In most vintages the Richard Dinner Chardonnay is distinguished by more of a phenolic character, but the 2018 is all about lift and energy. -- Antonio Galloni

A dense, rich chardonnay with a solid core of fruit and a pointed center palate. Full-bodied, focused and fruity, yet reserved at the same time. A savory and delicious wine to drink now.

Wine Spectator, April 2020
Custardy aromas are matched to apple pastry, dried apricot and pear tart flavors in this lusciously spicy style. The creamy richness extends to light buttery notes on the finish. Drink now through 2025. 481 cases made. — KM
