92 points "A weightless, textured wine, the 2011 Chardonnay Cahill Lane impresses for its sensual personality and pure grace. There is a level of finesse in 2011 that is simply fabulous. Dried apricots, flowers and sweet spices are layered into the finish. This is a relatively soft, approachable wine for the year. It should drink nicely upon release. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2017." Best 2014-2017

91 points "Bright yellow-gold. Smoky orchard and pit fruit aromas and flavors, with notes of honey and candied fig adding complexity and a sense of richness. Gains energy with air, picking up a lemon curd note that carries through a long, smoky finish. I like this chardonnay's blend of richness and vivacity. This site is planted to a Wente clone" Best 2014-2017
