2014 Mayacamas Mt. Veeder Chardonnay

96 points Vinous: "The 2014 Chardonnay is brilliant. Lemon oil, white flowers, mint, almonds and smoke are all beautifully delineated in this transparent, super-finessed Chardonnay built on total finesse. The decision to pick a touch earlier plus the blocked malo style result in a focused, energetic Chardonnay that hits all the right notes. Every time I go to Mayacamas there is something new to see. The redevelopment of this historic estate proceeds at what looks like a very rapid pace, even if it will be many years before the results of the work being done today shows up ...Read More »

2014 Hess Collection Napa Valley Chardonnay

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Readers looking for one of the big-time sleepers of the vintage, and a great value, need look no further than the 2014 Chardonnay Estate Napa. This is 100% Chardonnay from Napa and it sells for a song – and more good news is there are just over 24,000 cases of this wine that went through about 25% malolactic and was aged in stainless steel and neutral wood. Exotic floral notes of mango and guava jump from the glass, along with pineapple and honeysuckle. It is medium-bodied, crisp and fresh with loads of fruit. This is a big-time winner!

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) K&L Notes: From the producer: "At Napa Cellars, the Chardonnay grapes are carefully hand-picked, harvested and crushed. At the winery, a portion of the juice is then cold fermented in stainless steel tanks. The balance of the juice is barrel fermented and aged for seven months, and then put through malolactic ...

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.

No wonder that wine was so spectacular in those days. It also had an incredible aging curve as well. This wine continues to be a strong effort.
