2021 Sea Slopes Chardonnay 

91 Points - James Suckling
A generous, creamy and supple Sonoma chardonnay. Medium-bodied with volume and texture. Round, with aromas of ripe pears, baked peaches, brioche and sweet spices. Satisfying finish.

90 Points - Terroirist
Deep yellow color. The aromas show a pleasantly balanced blend between richer tones (honey, nougat, apricot, ginger, almond) with brighter ones (white flowers, sea salt, crushed limestone). The palate shows rich texture and racy acidity, making for a juicy but lip-smacking Chard with flavors of apricot and yellow apple. Notes of chalk, flint, almond shell, ginger snaps, and honey add complexity. Rich but nuanced, this would please many a Chardonnay-loving palate. Aged eight months in neutral French oak. Isaac James Baker, July 2023

★★★★ - The Press Democrat
A blousy chardonnay with its rich flavors kept in check by crisp acidity. Notes of honeysuckle and lemon, with a lingering finish. Pretty. Peg Melnik, June 2023
