“Consistently terrific wines. They are realistically priced and consumers couldn’t have a better friend than proprietor Stephen Hansel.” - Robert Parker 

94 Points | RP
“The 2017 Chardonnay Cuvée Alyce opens with new oak aromas of toast, smoke, nutmeg and a gunflint hint with pie crust, spiced red apples, warm yellow peaches and loads of savory nuances—honey, hazelnuts, dried hay—at the core. Medium to full-bodied, it packs a wallop of flavor in the mouth, giving up oodles of warm fruits, spices and savory flavors, with great freshness to lift the very long, layered finish. This is fabulous! Give it another couple years in bottle.” - Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
