Jeb Dunnuck 98 Points: “The 2019 Chardonnay Chloe comes from the Russian River, yet it shows an almost Sonoma Coast-like vibrancy and minerality. Deep stone fruits, brioche, honeysuckle, and flower oil notes all define the nose, and it’s beautifully balanced, medium to full-bodied, and incredibly textured, with a drop-dead gorgeous finish. This is another incredible Chardonnay from this estate that ranks with the crème de la crème of the vintage.”
Andy Smith Winemaker: “Our richest 2019 Chardonnay bottling, this wine seamlessly combines three low-yielding classic vineyards which effortlessly provide detail, nuance, power, and finesse. The concentration is offset by lilting acidity, which flickers and fades and provides a counterbalance to all this power.
Deep and intense aromatics of nectarine, apricot, mint leaf, chamomile, and flint. The flavors are expressive and generous with wave upon wave of ripe stone fruits and lemon oil. Layered and expansive, the wine’s deep concentration builds through the palate to a rising finish of mineral-infused acidity and lingering notes of almond and honey. Serve at 58F – not too cold – and drink between 2022 and 2028.“
