The 2017 Chardonnay Grand Reserve is one of the more Burgundian, reductive wines in the lineup. Stone fruits, crushed citrus, white flowers, brioche and sulfur notes all give way to a brilliantly pure, balanced, lengthy Chardonnay that has integrated acidity as well as a sense of minerality that makes you salivate.

The 2017 Chardonnay Grand Reserve is a gorgeous barrel-fermented Chardonnay that offers a striking interplay of richness and the more saline notes that are typical of Santa Barbara, where 75% of this fruit is sourced. Apricot, honey, dried flowers, mint and butter notes lead into the creamy finish. The Grand Reserve is very nicely done. Drinking window: 2019 - 2025
