Wine AdvocateFermented and aged 12 months in barrel, the 2013 Chardonnay Russian River Valley Anniversary Selection is a straight-up gorgeous Chardonnay. Rich and unctuous, yet also lively and fresh, its light gold color is followed by classic notes of buttered stone fruits, toasted nuts, lemon and hints of minerality. It has bright acidity, plenty of fruit and a great finish. It's impressive today, but I suspect it will keep for a decade or more.

Wine SpectatorFresh and lively, with a zesty core of pithy tangerine, nectarine, white peach and citrus, ending with a long aftertaste. Drink now. 1,260 cases made.
