93 points from Jeb Dunnuck: "A brilliant wine, the 2016 Chardonnay Sta Rita Hills comes from a handful of top vineyards (Peake Ranch, Zotovich, La Rinconada, etc.) and spent 13 months in 35% new French oak. It boasts a vibrant gold color as well as terrific notes of white flowers, apple blossoms, citrus, and notable salty, mineral-like subtleties. Clean, medium-bodied, fresh, and focused on the palate, with both richness and freshness, drink it over the coming 5-7 years." (11/29/2018)

92 Points from Wine Enthusiast Magazine: "Fresh and bright aromas of wild lime, chilled melon, Meyer lemon rind and a bit of toast make for a very inviting nose. With this bottling, the Edna Valley-based winery is branching out to other regions. The palate is tightly woven with zippy, sharp acidity, showing flavors of pomelo and Asian pear." (7/1/2018)

90 Points from Wine Spectator: "Offers a rich, spicy aroma, featuring concentrated Fuji apple and Asian pear flavors. Zesty midpalate, with a mineral-filled finish. Drink now through 2022. 1,680 cases made." (6/30/2018)
