The 2018 Chardonnay The Judge (a barrel sample) leaps from the glass with vivacious notes of mandarin peel, lemongrass and lime leaves with a core of fresh pink grapefruit, green guava and apple blossom plus wafts of shaved almonds and wet pebbles. Full-bodied, the palate delivers a powerful core of tropical fruit and savory layers with a lively line of freshness and a pleasantly oily texture, finishing long and zesty. Very pure, very delineated and wonderfully chalky at the very end. (LPB) 97-99+
The 2018 Chardonnay The Judge continues a theme seen in the Napa Valley Chardonnay of a wine built on nuance and class more than just on body. I can't remember tasting a Judge that is this elegant - it is so elegant and so refined. A wine of incredible precision, the 2018 is shaping up to be truly magical. I can't wait to taste it from bottle. Tangerine oil, mint, chamomile and honeysuckle keep the 2018 wonderfully nuanced and light on its feet. (AG)
