RATINGS

97Vinous / IWC

...wonderfully perfumed and light on its feet. Tangerine oil, apricot, chamomile and yellow orchard fruit show a brighter side of Chardonnay, and yet the Durell remains striking in its resonance and vibrancy.

95The Wine Advocate

...a lush, open-knit nose of mushroom paste, charcuterie, wet hay, crushed almonds, spring blossoms and a core of ripe orchard fruits. In the mouth, it has a medium weight and silky texture and explodes with savory, honeyed flavor layers, seamlessly fresh and finishing long and uplifted. Wow!

95Jeb Dunnuck

...a richer, broader Chardonnay that offers loads of mulled Meyer lemons, brioche, and honeysuckle notes as well as nicely integrated oak, medium to full body, plenty of toasty, nutty nuances, and a great finish. This classic, rich, powerful Sonoma Chardonnay does everything right.

TYPE
