This exceptional vintage gave us classic Russian River Chardonnay character, with fresh aromas of yellow apple and stone fruits highlighted by baking spice and vanilla tones. On the palate, flavors of ripe pear and honeydew melon are accented by toffee and hazelnut notes. The rich mouthfeel is beautifully balanced by juicy acidity and great concentration, giving a lush impression on a lingering finish.


WA 92 AG 92 IWC 90 WE 90 Pts - According to Robert Parker - The 2012 Chardonnay Russian River spends time in 29% new oak. It exhibits notes of orange marmalade, white peaches and pineapple, medium to full body, heady glycerin and a long, pure, well-balanced finish. It should drink well for 3-4 years.

According to Antonio Galloni - The 2012 Chardonnay Russian River Valley is the most lifted and layered of the La Crema Chardonnays. Flowers, green orchard fruit and spices all lift from the glass. This is a beautiful, totally harmonious Chardonnay from La Crema.

According to Stephen Tanzer - Pale gold. Lively lemon and green apple scents are complemented by chalky minerals and tarragon. Firm and juicy in the mouth, offering refreshingly bitter apple skin and lemon zest flavors that put on weight with aeration. Finishes dry and nervy, with strong mineral cut and an echo of tangy citrus fruits.

According to Wine Enthusiast - Pushes all the right Chardonnay buttons, with creamy tropical mango, papaya, pineapple and lime flavors. It also folds in buttered toast, vanilla and honey notes from oak.

According to Wine Spectator - Offers an elegant display of subtle creamy oak, white peach, nectarine and melon notes. Ends clean and pure. Drink now. 13.9% ABV.
