ROBERT PARKERThe 2018 Chardonnay Pastorale Vineyard, aged 13 months in 55% new French oak, has open-knit aromas of baked yellow apples, lemon meringue, beeswax and spices. In the mouth, it's medium-bodied and satiny in texture, with minerally fruits, bright acidity and a delicate finish.
VINOUS (ANTONIO GALLONI)The 2018 Chardonnay Pastorale Vineyard is complex and beautifully layered from the very first taste. Time in the glass brings out a whole range of aromas, flavors and textures. Lemon confit, white pepper and flowers give the 2018 aromatic brightness, but there’s also plenty of mid-palate pliancy and depth to balance things out. I especially like the wine’s palpable weight and strong-voiced character.
