“Our team was enchanted with this brand new release with team notes (unedited) that included exclamations of 'oh wow! This is beautiful' and 'sooo pure and delicious.' Initial notes of apple crisp, fresh pineapple and pears lead to toasted caramel (think top layer of crème Brule) and creamy oak on the savory finish. The delightfully fresh balance should make this a winner for several years to come. Enjoy now through 2028+.” - California Wine Advisors (April, 2022)

“This vintage of Chardonnay has a beautiful fresh feel. It’s well balanced with a sunshine citrus nose. The taste is of pineapple accents, apricot and nectarine essence. It coats your palate and warms your throat. The finish is long and lovely making you want more. This chardonnay is sophisticated with an adventurous spirit.” - Thomas Rivers Brown

“The 2018 Chardonnay Russian River Valley Buena Tierra Vineyard is smoking good and offers a richer, mouth-filling, medium to full-bodied style as well as notes of almond paste, stone fruits, spicy oak, and chalky minerality. Coming from a site in the Russian River Valley and fermented and aged in 35% new French oak, it’s a serious Chardonnay that should evolve for upwards of a decade. Thomas Rivers Brown is the winemaker.” - Jeb Dunnuck
