Tasting Notes:
rated: February 15, 2016 , Vinous
94 points "94 points Vinous The 2013 Chardonnay Vine Hill is one of the more aromatic, lifted wines in this range. Gracious and delicate to the core, the 2013 is quite understated in this vintage, perhaps because the slightly higher than normal yields bring out more of the floral signatures of this site than is typically the case. (AG) (2/2016)" Best 2016-2020
rated: March 15, 2016 , The Wine Advocate
96 points "96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate From the vineyard in front of the winery, the 2013 Chardonnay Vine Hill Road Vineyard offers up the classic Old Wente clone style of white peach, white currants, honeysuckle, apple blossom, medium to full body, gorgeous purity and richness in a style similar to a Corton Charlemagne from Burgundy. (RP) (3/2016)" Best 2016-2020
rated: June 29, 2016 , Wine Spectator
92 points "Young and vibrant, with a core of honeydew melon, creamy oak and pithy citrus flavors that are commanding, tight and focused. Long and persistent on the finish. Drink now through 2020.—J.L." Best 2016-2020
