Reviews and Ratings

Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

A creamy oaked Chardonnay with great tropical fruit characteristics. Orange blossom, butterscotch, with toast and lees on the palate. Remarkable texture and depth of flavour in this impressive Chardonnay. Tasted April 2016. 92 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
The Californian Chardonnay grapes for this wine are grown on cobble-laden soils in the Arroyo Seco region of Monterey County, a cool climate coastal district. The grapes are picked during October at night to preserve freshness with the cool temperatures. This is delicious wine; a great buy wine made by master winemaker, J. Lohr The 2014 was a Platinum award winner at the 2016 Winemaker Challenge International Wine Competition. - Community Wine Review
