93 Points 2012 Sierra Madre Vineyard Chardonnay
My favorite of the whites, the 2012 Chardonnay Sierra Madre Vineyard (Sta. Rita Hills) has gorgeous tropical fruits, white flowers, mint and salty mineral-like aromas and flavors that continue to develop in the glass. Spending 11 months in 21% new French oak, it has medium-bodied richness, notable freshness and a clean, nicely focused finish. It’s a superb Chardonnay that has both richness and freshness, and it will drink nicely for 3-4 years.
