Only the second vintage for this top Napa Chardonnay bottling. Dunnuck rates it 95 points, saying:
All from Napa Valley, the medium gold-colored 2018 Chardonnay Winemaker's Reserve offers a rockingly good bouquet of ripe stone fruits, honeyed citrus, toasted bread, and hints of spice. This carries to a rich, full-bodied Chardonnay that has a layered, opulent texture, moderate acidity, and a great finish. Classic Napa Valley goodness all the way, drink it over the coming 2-4 years.
In fact, Dunnuck rates it equal to the top Kongsgaard white he’s reviewed!
If you love the full-blown (yet still perfectly balanced) style of Napa Valley Chardonnay producers like Kongsgaard or even Far Niente and Shafer produce, but don’t want to pay their prices, look no further.
