2018 Argot Simpatico Ranch Chardonnay Bennett Valley - 96 PTS - JD

jeb dunnuck logo 250"The 2018 Chardonnay Simpatico Ranch is a step up, offering more of everything, including more focus and precision. Beautiful notes of ripe orchard fruits, toasted brioche, hazelnuts, and floral nuances flow to a richly textured, medium to full-bodied Chardonnay with a layered texture, integrated acidity, and a great finish. It’s another terrific wine from this estate. It opens up nicely with air and I suspect will evolve for 7-8 years, if not longer."
