Wine AdvocateThe 2010 Chardonnay UV-SL Vineyard boasts remarkable textural depth and finesse. Rich, round and seamless, the UV-SL is all about body and endless layers of flavor. An element of salinity gives a finish laced with white flowers and citrus of considerable freshness. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020.

Wine SpectatorAn intense if weighty white, with baked apple, pie crust, spice and honeysuckle flavors. Both bold and vibrant, this is pithy, gaining richness with fig and honeydew melon flavors. Should gain. Best from 2013 through 2022. 708 cases made.
