"The 2019 Chardonnay features compelling notes of spice cake, coriander seed, cashews and brioche over a core of apple sauce and poached pears. The medium to full-bodied palate is jam-packed with spiced apples flavors and toasty nuances, delivering a lively line of freshness and a savory/nutty finish. Delicious Chardonnay at a nice price!" (WA)

"This balanced, medium-full-bodied offering shows a nice bit of tartness to its slightly sweet mix of apples, apricots and gentle, but evident oak and, if in no way an extravagant wine, is a fairly complete one of moderate richness that will prove a versatile mate to a wide range of Chardonnay-friendly foods save for the likes of the very richest lobster and salmon recipes. It is tasty now but is more than capable of aging for several years should one choose to hide a few bottles away. Reviewed: May 2021" (CG)

"Lemon-curd, apricot, dried-pineapple and hazelnut aromas. It’s medium-to full-bodied with crisp acidity and concentrated mineral and dried-fruit flavors. Drink or hold." (JS)

"Ripe pineapple, peach, and marmalade-like notes emerge from the medium-bodied 2019 Chardonnay, which has a soft, fleshy texture, moderate acidity, yet a clean, balanced style that's a joy to drink. Enjoy bottles over the coming couple of years." (JD)
