"Lithe and powerful, featuring a vibrant core of apple and peach pastry flavors, with dried tropical fruit accents. Buttery midpalate, with a plush finish that lingers with intense spiciness. Drink now through 2024. 56,701 cases made. -K.M." (WS)

"The 2018 Chardonnay Katherine's Vineyard is all Chardonnay that spent 8 months in 20% new barrels. It's a richer, buttery, classic California Chardonnay with plenty of orchard fruit, medium to full body, a creamy, round texture, and a clean, classy finish. It's well done in the style and worth drinking." (JD)

"Editors' Choice, For such a widely available wine, this is an extremely reliable bet. Aromas of clean and light lemon, nectarine and sea salt are pleasantly mellow, while the palate offers balanced brushes of lemon peel and white peach, wrapped in a soft yet acid-boosted texture. -Matt Kettmann" (WE)

Winery Notes:
"Fresh fruit and floral aromas dominate the nose; pink grapefruit, tangerine, citrus blossom, and apple flavors are complemented by a bit of wet stone. The oak influence creates a nice mid-palate, the wine shows a balanced acidity that carries through the long finish." -Jill Russell, Winemaker
