Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"Aged in French oak, 40% new, the 2019 Chardonnay gives up expressive notes of ripe Bosc pears, fresh yellow apples and green guava with hints of marzipan, powdered ginger and pie crust. Medium to full-bodied, the creamy-textured palate delivers a wonderfully racy line, lifting the intense apple and pears flavors, finishing long and spicy."
"Aromas of hawthorn, dried lemon zest and toast. Crushed gravel, too. It’s full-bodied and creamy with tangy acidity."
"Stone fruits, toast, and ripe citrus notes all emerge from Merryvale’s 2019 Chardonnay Carneros, a medium-bodied, pure, elegant Chardonnay that has outstanding balance. Drink it over the coming 3-4 years."
