2015 Chardonnay - Cuvee Alyce
From Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 10/28/16, issue 227: "Produced from a field blend of Hyde and Hudson Wente selections. This is a big Chardonnay made from tiny berries. Orange marmalade, tangerine oil, honeysuckle and citrus are all present in this beautifully textured, full-bodied Chardonnay that shows little evidence of oak. Should drink well for at least a decade." 93-95 pts. 1085 cases produced.
From Antonio Galloni's Vinous.com: "The 2015 Chardonnay Cuvee Alyce is the richest and most exotic of these wines. A classic Russian River Chardonnay, the Cuvee Alyce is laced with the essence of tangerine, honey, roasted almonds and butter. This open-knit, inviting Chardonnay will drink well right out of the gate." 93 pts
