“In this vintage, the Chardonnay is surprisingly rich and unctuous yet it also retains its mid-weight feel. Orchard fruit, white flowers and mint, along with slightly tropical overtones, give the 2015 much of its distinctive personality. Readers who can find the 2015 should plan on cellaring it for at least a few years, as the wine needs time to shed its baby fat. Tasted again after the reds, with a good 30 minutes in the glass, the Chardonnay is flat-out gorgeous. About 80% of the wine spent time in larger foudres, which likely helped it retain a measure of freshness.”

Former Screaming Eagle winemaker, Andy Erickson, has taken the helm of legendary Mayacamas Vineyards and crafted the "Classic" 95 point Mayacamas Chardonnay Mt Veeder 2015. This iconic Napa Valley estate is enjoying a new life with Erickson's considerable talents pushing quality higher than ever and this “flat-out gorgeous” (Antonio Galloni) white will thrill collectors who enjoy Napa Chardonnays from other legendary producers like Cakebread and Pahlmeyer and should find a place in your cellar next to those wines.
