"Focused, with pure-tasting Fuji apple and Asian pear flavors that are supported by fresh acidity. Lemongrass notes show on the juicy finish. Drink now through 2022. 13,404 cases made. -KM" (WS)

"Readers looking for a good value for weekly drinking should check out the 2018 Chardonnay Monterey, as you get a heck of a lot of wine for not much buck. From the cooler Monterey region, it has classic notes of buttered stone and peach fruits as well as medium-bodied richness, good overall balance, and a soft, charming, undeniably delicious style." (JD)

"Delicate and light on the nose, this bottling begins with crisp aromas of squeezed grapefruit and Meyer lemon peel. It's clean and down the middle on the palate, showing flavors of apple slices drizzled in lemon juice and lime zest. Matt Kettmann" (WE)

Winery Notes:
The 2018 Chardonnay is a fresh and vibrant wine with stone fruit aromas and tropical citrus flavors. Rich and textured the wine has a smooth finish. -Kris Kato, Winemaker
