Talk about multi-dimensional! This Chardonnay hits all the senses from its golden hue and stunning perfume to the satiny, elegant texture and perfectly ripe fruit balanced by tangy acidity. Always poised among the best of any vintage, the 2018 truly is a show worth the price of admission. Grab your popcorn, settle into your favorite chair, and immerse yourself in 3-D.
My favorite of the Chardonnay releases is the 2018 Chardonnay 3D, and this beauty has everything you could want from a Sta. Rita Hills release. Medium gold-hued, with a stunning nose of stone fruits, white currants, crushed stone, toasted bread, and a hints of green almonds, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a seamless, elegant texture, flawless balance, and a great, great finish. It's one of the finest Chardonnays in this report.
