Vinous 96 WA 95 Pts - According to Antonio Galloni - "A big, powerful wine, the 2013 Chardonnay Home Block hits the palate with serious depth. The flavors are bright and focused throughout, but it is the wine's phenolic intensity that really stands out today. Orchard fruit, white flowers, pepper and mint all lend an element of freshness to the vivacious, structured finish. This is a superb showing from the Varner brothers. The 2013 can be enjoyed now but it also has enough energy and structure to drink well for a number of years."
According to Wine Advocate - "A classic Chardonnay, the 2013 Chardonnay Home Block Spring Ridge Vineyard offers lots of ripe Chardonnay apple and stone fruits, white flowers, brioche and hints of minerality in its medium to full-bodied, layered and balanced profile. Slightly richer through the mid-palate than the Amphitheater, it's still clean, focused and crisp, with terrific length. It too needs a year of cellaring and will keep through 2023."
