Wine EnthusiastAs soon as this Chardonnay hits the mouth, it explodes with ripe, heady flavors of pineapples, mangoes and limes. There's a complexity to the palate that makes it hard to believe its unoaked.

Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Chardonnay exhibits scents of orange rind and citrus intermixed with subtle background oak. Medium to full-bodied with fresh fruit and excellent to outstanding concentration, this beauty should drink well for 2-4 years.

Wine SpectatorRich and creamy-textured despite the lack of oak. Exhibits complex pear, fig, honeydew and light anise notes that are clean, pure and lingering.
