TOR KENWARD 2013 CHARDONNAY "TORCHIANA" CARNEROS 750mL

ROBERT PARKER 94-96 POINTS - "Tor Kenward continues to turn out a portfolio of wines with sensational quality. The longtime public relations guy at Beringer, he has decades of experience with some of the finest winemakers and vineyard sites in Napa and Sonoma. That thorough knowledge and expertise is admirably displayed in the following wines. This may be his best overall performance to date, although his 2011s were very successful for the vintage, and he produced many great 2010s as well. I tasted three bottled 2012 and four 2013 Chardonnay barrel samples. Tor Kenward utilizes highly regarded vineyards generally planted with low-yielding Old Wente clones. Rumors have always suggested these clones came from Corton-Charlemagne in Burgundy many decades ago. Tor has nailed the 2013 vintage as he has produced two wines that push perfection, and several others that merit scores in the high nineties. Kudos to Tor Kenward who is pushing the envelope in a dramatic and brilliant manner!"

"Once again, the tour de force of Torís Chardonnays is the 2013 Chardonnay Torchiana Beresini Vineyard. A light straw color with a greenish hue is followed by excellent notes of tangerines, apricots, peaches and a judicious touch of vanilla. Full-bodied, rich and layered but never heavy or ponderous, it should drink well for 4-6 years."
