Wine Enthusiast

Made from decades-old dry-farmed vines planted to the Wente clone in rocky, volcanic soils, this is a stunning wine, flinty, fleshy and expansive, with undeniable minerality. Lemon zest, meringue and pear contrast against persistent acidity and a lasting briny tone that lifts the palate further. Enjoy from 2026-2032.

James Suckling

Mayacamas always delivers such focused and well-crafted chardonnay like this with cooked-apple, pear, light vanilla and seashell character on the palate. It's tight and super integrated with a tight, creamy palate that goes on for minutes. Serious structure. Drink or hold.
