Reserve Chardonnay (2014)

Reserve Chardonnay – Wine Advocate – 91 Points

The 2014 Chardonnay Reserve is sourced from Chestnut Hill in Chehalem, plus Johnson Vineyard and Washer Vineyard (three different AVAs). Aged for 16 months in barrel (30% new oak), it has a clean and precise bouquet with white flower and baking powder infusing the light tropical fruit, hints of papaya and kumquat developing just behind. The palate is medium-bodied with an appealing waxy texture, peach and dried apricot notes on the entry with a pleasant leesy note on the finish. This is a subtle Chardonnay, very nuanced, one that I suspect will age with style. This is worth checking out and should provide delicious drinking over the next decade.
