|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
From Alexander Valley in Sonoma County, California, a delicious rich Chard with a nose of tropical pineapple and vanilla, followed by a palate showing more tropical fruit with lots of creamy butterscotch and slight lemon twist. Full-bodied, well-balanced with a long tropical/lemon finish.

A great Sonoma Chardonnay. Well structured, full bodied, with terrific tropical fruit on the nose and palate. Enjoy chilled with creamy summer pasta salads, roast chicken, quail, and scalloped potatoes. Tasted August 2015. 90+ points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
|Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
This Alexander Valley Chardonnay is pretty darn good! It pours with a bright lemon hue and clean pronounced aromas of sweet spice, butterscotch, baked apple, pineapple and vanilla.This wine has amazing complexity and an incredible balance of fruit and acidity (medium +). This wine also has a pronounced intensity of flavours including: citrus (pink grapefruit), tropical fruit (pineapple), oak, toast, and vanilla. Take a sip and you'll note a rich creamy mouthfeel with a long finish. Enjoy with fatty fish and/or creamy fish dishes like seafood chowder. Tasted Nov 2015.
|Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced reviewed this wine as follows:|
This is a big Chardonnay from Sonoma with a whopping 14.75% abv. Deep lemon colour, full-bodied with intense aromas and flavours of alcohol, apple, honey, butter, vanilla, toast and citrus. A long length on a hot finish. A little too much alcohol that overwhelmed the fruit in my humble opinion.
Tasted: August 2015
|An intense Californian white wine made from Chardonnay grapes. Robert Young was one of the first growers in Sonoma's Alexander Valley to convert prune trees to Chardonnay vines. Since, 1975 these grapes have made this wine with his children leading the operations: JoAnn, Susan, Jim and Fred Young. - Community Wine Reviews|
