Wine Advocate: 90pts
The 2016 La Cruz Chardonnay features honeysuckle, crème fraîche, lemon confit and wet hay with melon, plantain and Golden Delicious apple. Medium to full-bodied, it's creamy and broad in the mouth, with a good balance of ripe fruit and creamy flavors and a long finish. 265 cases produced.
Wine Enthusiast: 90pts
From the producer's own estate in the now-designated Petaluma Gap appellation, this wine opens in a sweet floral nose and develops in the glass to show apple, vanilla and pear. Rounded and rich, it possesses a backbone of acidity that matches the medium-bodied grip.
