Wine EnthusiastSmoked hazelnut and rich oak aromas are cut by whiffs of lemon rind, citrus spray, chalk and Asian pear on the nose of this appellation blend. The palate offers both sharp citrus and rounded apple flavors.
Wine SpectatorFocused and minerally tasting, with subtle toasty notes to the pear tart, baked apple and dried tropical fruit flavors, supported by fresh acidity. Offers a long, spicy finish. Drink now through 2022.
Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Chardonnay Sta. Rita Hills reveals a discrete nose of lime, lemon curd, white flowers and almond paste, followed by a medium-bodied, open-knit palate with juicy acids and average concentration and length.
