WE 95 W&S 92 Vinous 91+ WA 91 - "Bursting with aromatic floral and citrus notes, the 2013 Chardonnay envelopes the senses with honeysuckle, ripe pear, lemon zest and sweet honey. This wine shows beautifully balanced acidity with mouthwatering green apple and tangy Meyer lemon throughout the richly layered palate to the sumptuously viscous finish."

Details

WE 95 W&S 92 Vinous 91+ WA 91 Pts - According to Wine Enthusiat - This 100% varietal wine from the cooler outpost of Freestone is so deliciously crisp, bright in minerally lemon and fresh pear. It lingers on the palate in complex ways, elusive one moment, then exuberant the next—a celebration of ideal vintage and place.

According to Wine & Spirits - "There’s a taut and penetrating depth of flavor at the core of this chardonnay, from a wind-cooled vineyard among the redwoods near Freestone. It’s resolutely dry, with a tangy blood-orange verve, the grip of oak and creaminess of lees providing a context for the clean intensity of the fruit. Decant it for veal."

According to Antonio Galloni - "The 2013 Chardonnay Freestone Vineyard is quite pretty, but it is very tight today, most likely the result of its recent bottling. Lemon curd, chamomile and white pepper blossom in this expressive Chardonnay. The 2013 doesn't have the texture or depth of the 2012, but then again, some of that might be related to its recent bottling."

According to Robert Parker - "The 2013 Chardonnay Freestone Vineyard, which saw 100% malolactic and spent 13 months in about one-third new oak, is a large cuvée of 5,700 cases. The wine shows beautiful floral notes intermixed with citrus and honeysuckle, has great natural acidity and a hint of wet rocks giving it minerality and crisp, medium-bodied, nicely concentrated flavors. It reminded me of a premier cru Chablis. Drink it over the next 4-5 years." 13.5% ABV.
