2014 Beringer "Private Reserve" Napa Valley Chardonnay Top Pick!
2014 Beringer "Private Reserve" Napa Valley Chardonnay

95 points Decanter: "A fresh, fruity nose brings out notes of white flowers, golden apples and a certain touch of oak. This leads into a round, savoury palate loaded with new oak characteristics, hints of butter and butterscotch, a touch of apple and peach and a long finish." (9/2016) 95 points James Suckling: "Aromas of blueberry and blackberry character. Hints of dark fruit, violets and stones. Full-bodied, powerful and dense with beautiful fruit concentration and silky tannins. Shows reserve and finesse with structure. Better in 2021."

2014 Chateau Montelena Napa Valley Chardonnay Top Pick!
2014 Chateau Montelena Napa Valley Chardonnay

91 points Vinous: "The 2014 Chardonnay is bright, focused and finely-cut. Lemon peel, white flowers, mint and white pepper give the 2014 much of its lifted, mid-weight personality. As always, the Montelena Chardonnay is done in a brisk, dry style, with blocked malolactic fermentation. This is a terrific set of new releases from Bo Barrett and winemaker Matt Crafton. After a bit of back and forth in recent years on the stylistic direction of the wines - the Cabernets in particular - Barrett seems to have settled into a very comfortable place, as is evidenced by the stellar ...Read More »

2014 Pahlmeyer Napa Valley Chardonnay

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Chardonnay is light gold-colored with a greenish hue and beautiful, fresh tropical fruit flavors of pineapple, pear, honeysuckle and a touch of citrus. It is not as dense and concentrated as the 2013, but I love its vibrancy and beautiful subtleties and nuances. It is another top-notch effort from Pahlmeyer to drink over the next 7-8 years. Does anyone care if Demi Moore is still drinking Pahlmeyer Chardonnay?

2014 Napa Cellars Napa Valley Chardonnay

Wine Enthusiast: "A hearty cradling of oak provides a tinge of vanilla sweetness here, before richer notions of apple pie and cinnamon tug at the wine’s fuller-bodied core. It’ll appeal to fans of this richer, riper style, while still finishing in a measure of acidity." (8/2016)

(3/2017) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Chardonnay Karia is an elegant, restrained, understated style of Chardonnay with good, crisp citrus fruit, poached pear, a touch of honeysuckle, and a delicate, discreet oakiness. This medium-bodied wine is refreshing, well-made and attractive. (RP)" (6/2016) Wine Spectator: "Zeroes in on spicy apple, pear, melon and honeysuckle flavors.

2014 Newton "Unfiltered" Napa Valley Chardonnay

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Newton’s unfiltered Chardonnay has been a consistent winner since it was first launched in the early 1980s, when the fruit was coming from what is today John Kongsgaard’s Judge cuvée. Newton is still making this wine unfiltered, and the 2014 Chardonnay Unfiltered is rich and displays beautiful white peach, honeysuckle and tropical fruit, some nice, crisp wet pebble minerality in the background and a full-bodied mouthfeel. Deep, layered and complete, this is a big-time winner. (RP)" (12/2016)

(3/2017) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Chablis-like 2015 Chardonnay does not see any malolactic, and only a small amount (25%) of new oak. The result is a premier cru Chablis-like wine that captures the freshness, displaying touches of poached pear, white peach, loads of minerality and floral notes. Drink it over the next several years.

2015 Forman Napa Valley Chardonnay

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Veteran winemaker Ric Forman, who is celebrating his 50th vintage in 2016 (which is astonishing), has turned out one of his riper and richer Chardonnays in memory. The 2015 Chardonnay (totally non-malolactic) offers up 13.8% natural alcohol, which is probably slightly more than Forman prefers. Tangerine, nectarine, white currant and quince are all present in this medium to full-bodied, fresh, lively style. I have never had much luck with these wines aging, but they are delicious young, and the oak is always pushed way to the background. Drink this over t ...Read More »

2014 White Rock Napa Valley Chardonnay

Connoisseurs Guide: "*One Star* There are family resemblances between this wine and its mate above in their appley focus and supporting oak, but this wine is tight both in aroma and across the palate and comes with acidity that sticks out a bit. It is nearly equal to its mate in ripeness while lacking some of that wine's greater depth and richness, and it is recommended for service with pan-grilled trout, cracked crab and other lighter preparations."

He and his team have been developing a new strategy: pick at the underside of ripeness; whole-cluster press; settle for two days, then rack into new oak barrels; allow the fermentation to begin on its own and reach its peak (four or five days); then, with half the sugar remaining in the grapes, rack the wine to lined cement tanks to finish whatever it’s going to do, undisturbed for another nine months.

93 points John Gilman: "The 2012 vintage of Stony Hill Chardonnay is a beautiful young wine, but this is still defined by its impeccable structure and will need time in the cellar to really start to stir and deliver on its marvelous promise. The youthful bouquet offers up a very pure and still quite tight blend of apple, a touch of beeswax, chalky soil tones, fruit blossoms, a touch of fresh almond and a very, very faint touch of vanillin oak.

It is a wine of great fit and finish, and its lovely, lightly creamy oak is always in service to its juicy and very generous, fresh-apple fruit.
