Vinous

The 2018 Chardonnay Estate is bold, luscious and very easy to like. Tangerine, pineapple, butter and floral notes give this open-knit Chardonnay a decidedly tropical feel. Bright acids add freshness and keep the wine light on its feet. The 2018 is sure to be a crowd pleaser. (AG)

Wine Enthusiast

This is a widely available wine that excels on all fronts. Aromas of peach jam on toast, light acacia flowers and a touch of oak are smooth on the nose. The palate is grippy out of the gates, leading through flavors of Meyer lemon cream, pastry crust and balanced white peach. (MK)
