ANTONIO GALLONI 92 POINTS - "The 2018 Chardonnay is such a gorgeous wine. Apricot, tangerine oil, butter, spice and a touch of reduction give the 2018 a decidedly exotic flair, but then the Santa Cruz Mountains minerality kicks in to frame things beautifully. Rich, textured and vibrant in the glass, the 2018 is a terrific wine to drink now and over the next handful of years."
JEB DUNNUCK 90 POINTS - "Coming from an estate just to the south of the original estate (this property was purchased by Patterson in 2007), the 2018 Chardonnay is outstanding, with a rich yet vibrant style in its caramelized citrus, brioche, honeycomb, and smoky, mineral-like aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied, balanced, and focused on the palate, it has that classic Santa Cruz mineral-like sensation, impressive balance, and a great finish. It will drink nicely for 3-5 years."
