2016 Chardonnay - North Slope
12 bottle maximum
From Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, Issue 237, 06/29/18: "The 2016 Chardonnay North Slope Vineyard simply sings of beautiful orange blossom, ginger and coriander seed notes with a core of spiced pears and Golden Delicious apples. The palete is medium-bodied with quite an understated, restrained expression in the mouth, featuring a quite intensity of savory flavors, finishing on a mineral note." 94 pts
From Antonio Galloni's Vinous.com, 2018: The 2016 Chardonnay North Slope Vineyard fleshes out beautifuly in the glass. Textured, resonant and inviting, the 2016 offers a compelling interplay of dense fruit, lifted aromatics and gorgeous mid-weight structure. Lemon confit, white flowers and lightly honeyed notes grace this exquisite Chardonnay. The 2016 Cahill Lane is another impeccable wine from Stephen Hansel." 93 pts
