2012 Williams-Selyem "Drake Estate Vineyard" Russian River Valley Chardonnay

SKU #1174346 96 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Those who think they prefer anything but Chardonnay may be convinced otherwise with this wine. It is so powerfully evocative in crisply rendered Meyer lemon and tangerine notes, with aromas of fresh white flowers teasing provocatively on the nose. Seamless and seductively bright in acidity, it glides down the palate, hinting at a richness that never becomes overdone. (VB) Inner quote mark (4/2015)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Green-tinged gold. Vibrant, mineral-accented scents of pear, tangerine and lemon zest, with a hint of iodine in the background. Dry, nervy and precise but showing very good concentration to its orchard and citrus fruit flavors. The mineral quality repeats emphatically on the spicy, focused, very long finish. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2014)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Lots of orange blossom, caramelized citrus, guava and mango aromas jump from the glass of the 2012 Chardonnay Drake Estate Vineyard. Beautiful concentration, terrific acidity and no noticeable oak suggest this medium to full-bodied Chardonnay should drink well for 5-6 years. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2014)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Zippy acidity keeps the flavors dancing in this sleek, stylish Chardonnay. Elegant and deftly balanced, offering subtle nutmeg, cedar, green apple and green pineapple flavors, giving this just enough depth and complexity to maintain interest. Drink now through 2020. (JL) Inner quote mark (7/2015)
