"One of the best Chardonnays we have ever made!" says owner Bruce Newlan. Wines International Quarterly, scored this wine an 88, noting it had "Ripe tropical fruit aromas (banana), apple spice, butterscotch, caramel, vanilla cream and spicy/toasty oak."

Reviewed one year ago, The Wine Spectator which rated it an 83, saw a "firm, crisp tightly wound young wine, showing straightforward apple and pear flavors." The fruit for this wine came from several premium vineyards in the southern part of the Napa Valley.
