WINE ENTHUSIAST, October 2020
2017 Casteel Chardonnay – 94

Light, bright yellow. Meyer lemon, pear and smoky minerals on the deeply perfumed nose, along with hints of jasmine, vanilla and candied ginger that emerge with air.

WINE & SPIRITS OCTOBER 2019
2017 Eola-Amity Hills Estate Chardonnay– 92pts, Best Buy. Oak imprints this wine with a nutty, caramel scent, which gives way after a day to ethereal flavors of green apple and lime, salty and lifted. The texture is firm, richer than expected, infused with a pannacotta creaminess. – P.J.C
