JD 93pts Vinous.
of the great values out there, the 2017 Chardonnay Sta. Rita Hills offers
thrilling notes of white flowers, white peach, currants, and toasted bread.
This ripe, sexy wine is unquestionably at the same level as the more expensive
single vineyard releases, and it will evolve for just as long. JD
2017 Chardonnay (Sta. Rita Hills) is a gorgeous appellation-level wine from
Brewer-Clifton. Creamy and ample, the 2017 is absolutely delicious. Tangerine,
mint, lemon peel and sweet spice notes all meld together in a striking, nuanced
Chardonnay that hits all the right notes. The 2017 is positively stellar.
That's pretty much all there is to it. -- Antonio Galloni
