TASTING NOTES

"The 2017 Chardonnay Wayfarer Vineyard has pure scents of yellow apple, Meyer lemon and white peach, accented by crème fraîche, crushed stone, fresh hay and almonds with nuances of nutmeg and toast. Medium-bodied and creamy textured, it explodes with expansive flavor layers, with wonderful texture to counter the bright, juicy acidity and a long, honeyed finish. I can't wait to taste this after another year or two in bottle! 800 cases produced." Erin Brooks, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"The 2017 Chardonnay Wayfarer Vineyard is rich, phenolic and super-expressive, with real weight and density driving its profile. Apricot, tangerine, butter, lemon confit and white flowers are beautifully delineated in a Chardonnay that balances textural richness with viscosity. The blend of four clones (Mt. Eden, Hyde, Wente and 95) gives this Chardonnay uncommon elegance and complexity." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"There’s good intensity of fruit here with a wealth of deep, rich and fresh peaches, as well as grilled hazelnuts. Crisp palate with ripe, juicy peach flesh with attractive grip and a snap of oak at the finish. Nice, punchy style here. Drink now." JamesSuckling.com

"Rich, plush and spicy, with plenty of ripe tropical notes to the red peach, Gala apple and dried ginger flavors. Honeyed details linger on the finish. Drink now through 2023. 770 cases made." Wine Spectator
