Steve Tanzer 91 points - There are 8,000 cases of the 2012 Chardonnay Sonoma Coast, which reveals a greenish hue to its light medium straw color as well as an elegant perfume of caramelized citrus, brioche, lemon custard, orange rind and green apple skins. Medium-bodied with excellent texture, freshness and purity with the oak pushed to the background, it should drink well for 3-4 years.
"Pale yellow. Pure, finely etched aromas of lemon, pink grapefruit, Anjou pear, tarragon and white pepper. Racy citrus and orchard fruit flavors are given depth by melon and candied licorice qualities, with dusty minerals adding grip. This wine's light touch and finishing precision are impressive, and it's balanced to age." - STIWC 91
"The scents of lemon pastry and warm cinnamon fill the middle of this wine, the fruit sustained rather than overwhelmed by the oak. It finishes brisk and fine. For shellfish in a cream sauce." - WS 90
