Greenish gold. Potent citrus and orchard fruit aromas are complicated by suggestions of iodine, white flowers and quinine. Taut, spicy and dry, displaying a juicy quality to its concentrated tangerine and pear flavors. Rich yet minerally and sharply focused, finishing with outstanding clarity, thrust and persistence. This nervy, lithe chardonnay, which checks in at a relatively low 13.4% alcohol, is a still a baby and really demands at least a few more years of patience.

93 points, Josh Raynolds, Vinous (Dec 2014)
