Vinous 95 WA 93 Pts - According to Antonio Galloni - "Varner's Chardonnay Amphitheater Block is rich, ample and super-expressive. Lemon peel, almonds, chamomile, earthiness, dried apricot and sage meld together effortlessly. The 2013 Amphitheater is a classic Varner Chardonnay built on phenolic intensity and plenty of savory/floral notes that add nuance, while the fruit is pushed a bit into the background."
According to Wine Advocate - "More vibrant and fresh than the Holly's Cuvee, yet not as rich, the 2013 Chardonnay Amphitheater Block Spring Ridge Vineyard offers lots of lemon peel, crushed rock, white flowers and baked apple aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied, juicy, racy, and pure with vibrant acidity, it's showing nicely today, but I think will be even better in another year or two."
The 2012 vintage of Amphitheatre Block Chardonnay received a score of 95 points by Robert Parker's Wine Advocate along with a knockout score of 94 points by Antonio Galloni of Vinous. Super allocated, this wine will be gone before the scores for 2013 are released. 13.5% ABV.
