91 points "Barrel fermented with wild yeast in French oak, 34% new, and matured for 10 months in oak, the 2010 Chardonnay offers a youthfully closed nose of fresh peaches and cream, cedar, lightly toasted bread and apple tart. Medium bodied and packed with nervy flavor intensity in the mouth, it has crisp acidity and a silken texture, finishing long with lingering honeyed toast notes. Still very tight, consider drinking it 2012 to 2016+." Best 2012-2016

92 points "Supple and elegant, this faintly mineral and smoky young chardonnay has a spicy bouquet whose peach, grapefruit, melon and lime juice aromas are partnered by sweet oak and nuances of cloves and ginger. Long and vibrant, with pure varietal fruit and subtle creamy, leesy complexity, it finishes with a gentle, lemony acidity." Best 2011-2014
