“This wine’s strawberry and raspberry flavors carry a slightly funky bouquet, but call it a feature, not a flaw. It has salted caramel notes from aging for nine months in 30% new French oak, and it’s creamy and focused on the palate, finishing on a hint of cola.” – Paul Gregutt, Contributing Editor

“This young wine balances ripe tangy fruit flavors of apple and peach against barrel flavors from aging in roughly one-quarter new French oak. The good components are in place, but a bit more bottle age should help to pull them together.” – Paul Gregutt, Contributing Editor

“Opening with youthfully mute toast and cedar suggestions over a core of lemongrass, white peach and fresh apples, the 2015 Chardonnay is taut and finely constructed, with an appealing quiet intensity plus great freshness and length.” – Lisa Perrotti Brown, Contributing Editor
