Wine Enthusiast – 94 points
From a blend of sites in the appellation, including Keefer, Zio Tony and Ritchie, this is a bright, salty and broadly expansive white that’s gorgeously aromatic in wet earth and rose petal. The flavors are fruity in peach and pear, with a richness that is honed by the complementary acidity.
Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate – 92 points
The 2017 Chardonnay One Sixteen aged from four to 15 months in several vessels: 34% new French oak, 30% stainless, 18% foudres, 3% concrete eggs and 1% concrete tanks. It opens with aromas of roasted almonds, toast, white peach, gunflint and dried chamomile with touches of lemon pith. The palate is light to medium-bodied with toasty fruits, well-woven but refreshing acidity and a long, savory finish. This is a touch rounder and more open than its 2016 counterpart. 3,400 cases produced.
