Hazy golden-yellow in color, aromas of tangerine oil, Meyer lemon bloosom, green apple skin, and yeasted dough that are highlighted by an underlying flinty, smoky component. Rich flavors of ripe Gravenstein apples, lemon curd tartlet, and roasted hazel nuts coalesce on a lingering, minerality marked finish. Drinking well now, but expect this wine to drastically improve with another 6 to 12 months of cellaring. Designed to age this wine should provide 5-8 years of extraordinary drinking experiences.

"The 2014 Chardonnay Pratt Vineyard offers white grapefruit, lemon curd and white peach notes with hints of crushed stones, coriander seed and baking bread. Medium-bodied with a lovely satiny texture, the palate has wonderful energy and expression, finishing long and savory." 93 Points - RobertParker.com
