WA (88-90) Pts - According to Robert Parker - The 2012 Chardonnay Estate offers up intriguing aromas of orange blossom, white currants and powdered rock along with fresh acidity, no evidence of oak, and a long, nicely textured, medium-bodied finish. With more tropical fruit nuances to go along with the minerality and good acidity, it should drink well for 2-4 years.
According to Antonio Galloni - The 2012 Chardonnay (Sonoma Coast) is a great introduction to the Red Car wines. Bright lemon oil, white flowers, mint and crushed rocks are some of the many notes that emerge from the glass. The 2012 has lovely energy and focus that plays off the fruit nicely. This is a very pretty, harmonious Chardonnay from Red Car. The Sonoma Coast is 89% purchased fruit and 11% estate. 13.7% ABV. Rated 90+
