Jeb Dunnuck (JD) : 96 Points (2019)
I've always loved the Chardonnay from this team, and their 2019 Chardonnay Red Shoulder Ranch has that classic richer, full-bodied style while staying balanced and light on its feet. Buttered lemons, tangerines, green almond, and toasty notes all make an appearance, and it's incredibly textured, with nicely integrated acidity and one heck of a finish. This powerful Chardonnay is going to impress right out of the gate.Barrel Sample: 94-96

Robert Parker (RP) : 93 Points (2019)
The 2019 Chardonnay Red Shoulder Ranch opens with opulent scents of pineapple upside-down cake, green mango and ripe apricots with hints of candied ginger, brioche, allspice and toasted almonds. The rich, creamy-textured palate is laden with tropical fruit and juicy peach flavors, supported by a racy backbone and finishes long and spicy. Barrel Sample: 91-93

Wine Spectator (WS) : 92 Points (2019)
Features a minerally snap to the lusciously spiced Fuji apple, white cherry and dried apricot flavors that are backed by rich acidity. Pastry accents on the focused finish offer hints of beeswax. Drink now through 2025.

Wines & Spirits (W&S) : 91 Points (2019)
A citrusy vintage of Shafer’s chardonnay, this wine’s orange-blossom scents set the tone for the sweet fruit, even as the wine remains tight, with youthful energy to spare. Decant it while you grill swordfish with lemon and fresh dill.

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 95 Points (2018)
This robust, full-bodied white holds its weight and pedigree remarkably well, offering an intensely flavored, richly layered experience that seamlessly provides freshness along the way. Apple, cinnamon and nutmeg are complemented by toasted oak and lasting structure.

Vinous (Antonio Galloni) (VN) : 93 Points (2017)
The 2017 Chardonnay Red Shoulder Ranch is a very beautiful wine. The warm vintage produced a Chardonnay that is a bit richer and more generous than has become the norm here in recent years, but the style of the wine is unchanged in its citrus and floral driven profile. Range: 91-93
