Starting with the Chardonnay, the 2016 Chardonnay Wayfarer Vineyard is an extraordinary effort as well as world-class. Offering an ultra-pure bouquet of white flowers, tangerine, crushed citrus, and hints of brioche and marzipan, it hits the palate with medium-bodied richness, a seamless, elegant texture, riveting acidity, and a great, great finish. It's certainly one the gems in the great vintage and is going to benefit from a year or two of bottle age and keep for 15+ years.
The 2016 Chardonnay Wayfarer Vineyard opens with beguiling scents of fresh ginger, orange blossoms, baking bread, toasted almonds and beeswax with a core of pineapple, grapefruit, lemon meringue pie and green mango. Medium to full-bodied, the palate explodes with tropical and citrus fruit goodness, supported by a racy line of acid and finishing on a persistent gingery note. (LPB) 97+
Moderately structured, complex and balanced in weight, this is a tremendous white, coastal in briny salt breeze and oak. The fruit profile is savory and crisp, a mix of lime zest and tangerine that brightens and lengthens the well-integrated palate. (VB)
A bold style with rich nougat and glacé peaches, leading to a palate that has soft, round, butter-infused peaches and a delightfully fresh finish. Drink now.
The 2016 Chardonnay Wayfarer Vineyard is wonderfully open and expressive, much more so than any of the 2016 Pinots. Lemon confit, apricot, chamomile, savory herbs and mint nuances are nicely delineated. Medium-bodied and supple, the 2016 will drink well with minimal cellaring. (AG)
Firm and fleshy, with good cut to the focused green pear, Granny Smith apple and kiwifruit flavors. Hints of dried tarragon show on the crisp finish. Drink now through 2022. (KM)
