“Another brilliant wine in this range, the 2016 Chardonnay Hudson Vineyard is superb. Dense, powerful and beautifully layered, the 2016 exudes richness in all of its dimensions. There is plenty of Hudson textural resonance, but the 2016 is at the same time quite polished and refined. I very much admire the sense of balance.” - 94 Points, Antonio Galloni (6/18) 

“Perfumed notes of mint, iris flower, green citrus and a wet rock-like minerality emerge from the 2016 Chardonnay Hudson Vineyard. It shows more and more classic orchard fruits with time in the glass and has remarkable purity, good acidity, and a classic feel. I suspect it will age for a decade as well.” - 94 Points, Jeb Dunnuck (6/18)
