Robert Parker (RP) : 90 Points (2016)
The 2016 Chardonnay was fermented and aged in 500-liter puncheons. It reveals elegant aromas of pencil shavings and white peaches, then flavors of pineapple. This medium to full-bodied wine is plump through the mid-palate, silky in texture and lingers on the finish.

Jancis Robinson (JR) : 16 Points (2008)
Tasted Jan 2011 - Herbal, salty and with some orange pith. Certainly charismatic, but perhaps a bit plastic? (RH)

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 90 Points (2007)
Remarkably consistent in quality year after year, Peg Bay’s 2007 Chardonnay opens with some slightly funky aromas that moderate with aeration to reveal a toasty, smoky wine with a core of melon fruit. It starts off seeming a touch narrow, but broadens and deepens on the palate, ending with impressive length. — J.C. (7/1/2010)

This deep purple hued wine has a beautiful aroma of red dark fruit combined with a touch of mint, layered with chocolate notes. Complex and smooth on the palate with ripe tannins and a long finish.
