Light bright yellow. Fresh pear, peach and tangerine on the highly perfumed nose; hints of fennel and toasted brioche gain strength with air. Pliant and juicy in the mouth, offering intense, mineral-inflected orchard and pit fruit flavors that become more energetic as the wine opens up. Finishes impressively long and precise, delivering outstanding energy and lingering mineral and pear nectar notes.

This excellent reserve celebrating the winery's 45th anniversary is a multi-vineyard blend that includes grapes from the top cuvées. It's high toned and scented with whiskey barrel aromas and hints of fresh bread, caramel and almond paste. Although there's plenty going on, the fruit plays a supporting role to all the barrel flavors.

91 pts Wine Advocate

The 2015 Chardonnay Reserve has a delicate nose of crème fraîche, lemon confit, white peach and wet stone. Medium to full-bodied and creamy textured, it fills the mouth with ripe citrus and white peach plus notes of honey toast and cream, with juicy acidity, finishing long and textured.

90 pts Wine Spectator

Graceful and polished, with expressive pear, spice and guava accents that glide elegantly on a lingering finish. Drink now through 2021.
