92 from Decanter:
Slightly restrained nose with nice stone fruit and floral character underneath. Light lemon sherbet notes with toasted pineapple on the palate, pleasingly dry and youthful finish. Drinking Window 2021 - 2025
Wine & Spirits also rates this the finest Nielson wine to date:
Salty and lean, with a sea-wrack scent and lemon-lime flavors framed by nutty lees notes, this is chalky and brisk, well put together for char-grilled chicken.
Top vineyards plus winemaking that’s not only serious but unusually balanced and restrained (and not at all “commercial” or manipulated, as virtually every California wine at this price point is) have led to a Chardonnay here that – as Decanter found – can not only compete with but can wipe the floor with most California Chardonnays at twice or more the price.
