"A full-bodied white with aromas and flavors of apricots, dried mangoes, toasted hazelnuts, flint and saline notes. Buttery with an underlying smokiness, balanced by elegant acidity. Drink or hold." - James Suckling (December 2020), 92 pts
"The 2017 Chardonnay River Road Ranch is also made in a charming, straightforward style, with quality honeyed orchard fruits and toasty notes, medium-bodied richness, and good overall freshness and balance. It's ideal for drinking over the coming 2-3 years." - Jeb Dunnuck (May 2020), 88 pts
Upgrade your Chardonnay Chardonnay is easy to come by—it’s our most popular wine by a wide margin. But don’t say, “I’ll have a glass of Chardonnay,” unless you mean it—and make sure that glass earned gold. Life’s too short to dip into a sea of unremarkable Chard."
