This is one of the best Reserve Chardonnays we have made - a knockout! Rich, complex, balanced. As always, this wine is made using very traditional, time tested wine making techniques…whole cluster pressed, complete barrel fermentation with 100% malo, and aging on the lees for the first year in mostly new, Francois Freres oak barrels, then bottled after 18 months total barrel time. Score: 93 points - Vinous. Score: 91 points - Robert Parker.
