Vinous 93 W&S 90 Pts - According to Antonio Galloni - Lemon peel, white flowers, white pepper and mint open up in the 2013 Chardonnay Russian River Estero. The flavors are bright and lifted, with gorgeous textural depth and balance. Drink this mid-weight, energetic Chardonnay over the next handful of years. This is an impeccable, beautifully balanced Chardonnay from Lioco.
According to Wine & Spirits - Lioco’s multi-vineyard Russian River blend has the sweet crispness of a white peach just on the edge of ripeness, simple but lively and persistent, finishing on a breezy floral aroma. It’s a refreshing chardonnay for aperitifs and salads.
Tasting Notes - Mirabelle, cheese rind, sesame seed. Lemon tart, crushed stone, miso. Pair with scallop crudo, miso-glazed cod, chicken tagine. 12.5% ABV.
