2017 Three Sticks "Durell Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Chardonnay

SKU #1481481 94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Impressive complexity and powerful aromas of ripe pears and peaches here. Lots of spice, grilled almonds and clotted cream, too. The palate has a smooth delivery of supple, creamy pears and peaches, brulee custard and plenty of spiced-orange sponge cake to close. Drink or hold. Inner quote mark

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2017 Chardonnay Durell Vineyard, aged 15 months in 30% new French oak, has scents of toast, citrus peel, wet stone and honey-drizzled hazelnuts with a core of white peaches and baked apples plus a lacy veil of sweet spices. In the mouth, it’s medium-bodied and silky, with slowly expanding, honey-laced flavors on the long, juicy finish. Yum! (EB) Inner quote mark (12/2019)

92 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark From a great site in the Sonoma Coast that sits on an old riverbed, the 2017 Chardonnay Durell Vineyard spent 15 months mostly in used barrels (30% new). It has a slightly deep gold hue as well as a richer, fuller, more opulent style as well ample baked apples, brioche, toasted bread, and caramelized notes. This is a rich, powerful Chardonnay that’s not as aromatic as the Alana Vineyard, yet packs more muscle on the palate. Drink it over the coming 4-5 years. Inner quote mark

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Full-bodied, powerful and rich, with concentrated flavors of baked apple, dried pear and custard, backed by bright acidity. Pastry and buttery notes linger on the creamy finish, with some savory hints. Drink now through 2024. Inner quote mark

K&L Notes

95 poThe 2017 vintage is a milestone for Price Family Vineyards, which purchased this prestigious site 20 years prior; the fruit comes from the northernmost, oldest, and coldest section. Aged 15 months in French oak (30% new), the resulting wine has a lush texture, creamy body, and stony center, culminating in a wealth of depth and class. Aromas of lemon verbena and pear tart mesmerize as the palate proffers edgy notes of lemon zest positioned with high acid, which tames the rich texture. It finishes with a mouthful of honeyed apple.
