2017 Westwood Chardonnay, Sangiacomo Roberts Road Vineyard, Sonoma Coast
On the palate, it has a brilliant citrus entry and lemon-lime acidity throughout contrasted beautifully with robust texture from aging on the lees and a satisfyingly long finish of lemon tart.
95 Points - Jeb Dunnuck
"The single vineyard 2017 Chardonnay Sangiacomo Vineyard comes from a site on the Sonoma Coast and was fermented and aged 8 months in 30% new French oak. It’s a more racy, salty, vibrant effort that has terrific white flowers, orange blossom, and honeyed citrus notes as well as medium to full-bodied richness. Balanced, layered, and just a great example of the rich yet racy style that’s prevalent in the vintage, it’s going to benefit from a year in bottle and I suspect have a decade of longevity."
94 Points - The Wine Advocate
"The 2017 Chardonnay Sangiacomo Vineyard, barrel fermented and aged in 50% new oak, sings of honey drizzled white peaches, lemon tart, lime cordial and shaved almonds with touches of struck match, chalk dust and mandarin peel. Medium-bodied, the palate has electric citrus intensity with a lively line of freshness and bags of mineral notions on the long finish. 304 cases produced."

"This wine is fleshy on the palate and bright in aromas of citrus and stone. Notes of pear, flint and lime provide an unctuous nature on the palate, with refreshing acidity making for a nicely balanced and memorable experience."
