“The 2014 Floodgate is a solidly built wine that will satisfy every Chard lover’s palate. Showing a bouquet of lemon oil, pastry dough and pain grillé, it builds on the palate with an elegant texture, great balance, and plenty of pure Russian River fruit. This is drinking perfectly right now and will continue to show well over the next 2-3 years.” - California Wine Advisors
