“This liquid gold is guaranteed to electrify fans of Big & Buttery Chardonnay while it’s also gloriously refreshing thanks to the overall balance of bright fruit. Captivating hints of butterscotch and Hawaiian macadamia nuts come alive on the palate intertwined with notes of fresh peaches, vanilla, minerals, lemon oil, and honeysuckle on the pristine finish that is still relatively restrained as of this writing. This ultra-impressive new Chardonnay is 100% unfiltered and aged in new French Oak with indigenous wild yeast for 19 months. The result is a powerhouse effort that combines the age-ability of a noteworthy "grand cru" Burgundy with the full throttle Russian River fruit California collectors will adore. Aging potential for 5-7 years, peaking around 2025 in our estimate. 98+ points now and contender for 99 in the next few years.” - California Wine Advisors
