Critic Notes

Coming from the oldest vines in the appellation, the 2013 Chardonnay Sanford & Benedict is a gorgeous Chardonnay that offers lots of mineral and oyster shell characteristics to go with ripe stone fruits, white flower and brioche. Elegant, juicy, already approachable and layered, with the most texture of the bunch, it's a terrific wine to drink over the coming 4-5 years. Aug 2015, www.robertparker.com
