Aged 15 months in 20% new French oak and bottled unfiltered, the 2016 Chardonnay Sanford & Benedict Vineyard is straight-up sensational juice. Offering loads of ripe orchard fruits, orange blossom, pineapple cream, and hints of brioche, it's layered, seamless and pure on the palate, with beautifully integrated acidity. It has everything you could want from a Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay and will drink beautifully for 10-15 years.

The 2016 Chardonnay Sanford & Benedict Vineyard wafts from the glass with aromas of lemon oil, grapefruit, citrus blossom and white currants. On the palate, the wine is supple, medium-bodied and delicately textured, with lovely purity and chalky back-end grip, but seemingly a little withdrawn after its recent bottling. Given the site and the winemaker, I may be underestimating it.
