Showcasing the best of each vineyard, the 2018 is an enticing tropical medley of kiwi and yellow peach with high notes of white flower and fresh linen. The oak is flawlessly integrated, with a lingering minerality and salinity completing the symphony.
96 points James Suckling – Impressive complexity and poise from the outset with aromas of sliced peach and nectarine, as well as pear and honeydew. Some wet stones, too. The palate has impressive fluidity with intense, fleshy pears and white peaches, threaded with a savory, toasted-hazelnut edge. Drink or hold.
93 points Robert Partker’s Wine Advocate – The 2018 Chardonnay Evenstad Reserve has a nose of golden apples and citrus with wafts of floral perfume. The palate manages delicacy with loads of powerful flavor, with a fresh, bright acidic frame and a very long, mineral-laced finish.
94 points Wine Enthusiast – This is a standout among the winery’s very strong Chardonnay portfolio. It’s densely packed with flavors of lemon, lime, grapefruit and pineapple, offering a posh mix of citrus set against zippy acidity. A hint of citrus peel puts a frame around the finish and sets this up for cellaring.
