 Wine Advocate 88 points (Aug 2013)
A well-made, delicious white that carries ripe orchard fruit, spice, toast and crushed stone-like minerality, the 2010 Chardonnay Santa Rita Hills is medium-bodied, soft and supple, with an upfront, plump and drink-me-now feel. Itís a good value and should drink nicely for 2-3 years. Drink now-2016.

Wine maker notes
Our 2010 Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay comes exclusively from our two estate vineyards in heart of this cool climate appellation. The 2010 vintage was low yielding, itense, but balanced, resulting from a cool summer followed by a short heat wave in September. This produced intense, but elegant wines with great structure. This hand harvested, barrel fermented Chardonnay shows intriguing aromas of citrus, pineapple, and toasted hazelnut. In addition to the bright fruit, this wine has complex floral characters and minerality that carries through its long finish. This full bodied wine has nice acidity to keep it in balance and makes a nice complement to most seafood, poultry and pasta with lighter sauces, and makes an excellent pairing with mushrooms (especially chanterelles and morels).
