2010 Two Sisters "Courtney's Vineyard" Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay (Elsewhere $25) ($19.99)

92 points Wine & Spirits: "Earthen and powerful, this doesn't fully show itself until it takes on some air. If youre going to drink it soon, decant it. Like the Lincourt chardonnay below, this comes from the Foley Family stable, in this case from the top-performing blocks of Bill Foleys chardonnay vineyard at Rancho Las Hermanas. It's raised exclusively in new oak barrels, but the fruit has enough power to hold the oak in place, feeling rich and poised in its pineapple and sea salt pungency. It would stand up well to sea bass in a brown butter sauce." (08/2013)

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Everything about this Chardonnay speaks of class. It's dry and superbly structured in acids and tannins, and shows a chalky minerality that lends substance to the tropical fruit and honeysuckle flavors. Two Sisters is assembling a great track record with this bottling. " (07/2013)

Wine Spectator: "Features aromas of ripe baked apple, citrus and green pear, with lively acidity and a cleansing aftertaste. Drink now through 2017." (07/2013)
