SKU #1317398 95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Intense aromas of gunpowder and sliced lemon. So cool. Full body, with lovely pine nut and sliced apple character. Long and flavorful finish. Exciting white. Better in a year or two. Inner quote mark (5/2017)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2014 Chardonnay Ulises Valdez Vineyard has beautifully expressive cashews and lemon tart notes with underlying nectarines, musk melons, baking bread and acacia honey. Full-bodied and incredibly concentrated, it gives loads of citrus and stone fruit layers with plenty of savory accents and a long, creamy finish. (LPB) Inner quote mark (2/2017)

90 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2014 Chardonnay Ulises Valdez Vineyard is one of the most powerful, intense Chardonnays in the lineup. Stylistically, the Valdez is a bit bombastic in its first impression. A veil of reduction hovers over the fruit and adds an edginess that is out of character with the rest of these Chardonnays. There is good intensity, but not quite the nuance of the finest wines in this range. The 2015 is Paul Hobbs' last vintage with this fruit. (AG) Inner quote mark (3/2017)
