Reviews and Ratings

Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Sweet notes of caramel, vanilla and spice coming out of the glass - generous amounts of oak - the mouthfeel is full and luscious with a lengthy finish. Drink now.
Melanie Lloyd rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

A Chardonnay with lots of oak. Aromas of pineapple, banana candy, vanilla, butterscotch and a touch of citrus. Flavours of pineapple and candied tropical fruit as well as vanilla. It is a full bodied white that has a long finish.
Tasted October 2017
Wine grapes for this Napa Valley Chardonnay come from cool-climate, upper valley vineyards. Delicato Family Vineyards, First Press (2015) has a caramel, vanilla and smoky nose from generous oak ageing. On the palate the wine has great acidity with lemon curd, banana and vanilla toast. Pair with roast chicken or grilled pork chops. - Community Wine Reviews
