Tasting Notes by Winemaker Charles Smith

“Aromas not seen before. Chamomile, lime leaf and limestone fill the air giving way to a luxurious palate full of ripe golden pear, lemon curd and beeswax that continue to persist as long as one can imagine.”

Vintage Notes

The 2018 vintage was incredible! This outstanding vintage began mild followed by a long and dry ripening season in the fall. This enabled us to hang the fruit to reach optimal ripeness without losing acidity or increasing sugars. The wines from 2018 are exceptional in many ways, from the great expression of the whites to the beautiful refinement and complexity of the reds. Enjoy!

Current & Past Scores

96 Points – James Suckling (v2017)

“Love the lifted nose to this chardonnay with dried-apple, lemon and flor character. It’s fullbodied, dense and layered with a fantastic finish. This is very special. Wild yogurt, rye grain and dried nougat at the end. Wonderful. Drink or hold.”

94 Points – Jeb Dunnuck (v2017)

“More lemon curd, honeyed apple, and melon notes emerge from the 2017 Chardonnay Moxee, which comes from limestone soils and a west-facing slope. Rich, medium to full-bodied, and beautifully textured, with subtle oak, it’s a killer bottle of Chardonnay that will evolve for a good decade or more.”
