Medium straw gold in color, the 2014 SLH opens with an opulent, ripe, luscious, honeyed nose. Nuances of tropical fruits combine with citrus and a whiff of vanillin. White peach on the palate, but then a dynamite core of minerality supports perfectly ripe and exotic fruit tones. Full-bodied, opulent, harmonious and dramatic; this wine is simply breathtaking. Cali Chard lovers will find a LOT to love, and be amazed at the value.
94 points, Bob Sprentall, B-21 Proprietor (Jul 2016)
Golden-hued in color, this wine opens up with opulent fruit aromas of pineapple, peach, citrus notes and banana. The expression in the mouth is soft, round and elegant with flavors of lemon zest, apple pie, vanilla bean and buttered toast. It has a rich and luscious mouth-feel with bright acidity on the finish.
