More information on wine critics and ratings

Riper fruit aromas containing hints of white peach along with our characteristic grapefruit pith; emanate gracefully from this higher elevation and steeper north facing site. Stone fruit features again and combines with a textural and mouthcoating palate to give a broad and expansive finish.

Finely composed and nothing in excess, allowing articulate site expression.

Robert Parker (RP) : 94 Points (2016)
From a north-facing slope, the 2016 Block 6 Chardonnay delivers classic Chardonnay aromas of white peaches and gently toasted hazelnuts. It's medium-bodied, with a plump, succulent mouthfeel and a crisp backbone of citrusy acids. Complex shades of baking spices accent the nearly endless lemony finish. A modern-day classic.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 92 Points (2015)
Opens with a vibrant streak of Meyer lemon flavors at the core, succulent and juicy, accented by notes of green apple, grapefruit zest and white peach. Focused and intense on the finish. Drink now. 282 cases made.

A very deep red Merlot. Complex aromas of dark fruits, chocolate, spice and a hint of violets. Silky on the palate thanks to fine tannins, with subtle black olive flavours and a smooth, lingering finish.

On the palate there is a vigor and liveliness to the wine and, as the aromas suggest, intense complexity and completeness. Its equilibrium enables the wine to show well young but at the same time it has an enormous potential for ageing.
