    92 Points, Wine Advocate
    “The 2016 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay offers a great intensity of fresh, pure apple and white peach aromas with hints of baker’s yeast and allspice plus a waft of honeysuckle. Medium to full-bodied and delivering mouth-filling stone fruit and spice flavors, it has a satiny texture and great length.

    “Very fresh Chardonnay, with rich apple, softly spiced pear and zesty lemon brightness in both aroma and flavor, finishing very bright and long.

    “A bright razzleberry – my term for raspberry and spice intermingled perfectly – aroma profile invites, and the palate delivers the promise, with citric acidity enlivening the fruit and carrying the spice through a bold, lingering finish. A great solo glass for fans of enthusiastic elegance, or pair with game bird or roast pork. Who know great quality could be this much fun?” —Rich Cook, December 4, 2018

    “Steve MacRostie strikes again with this macro AVA bottling, which includes sources like Bacigalupi, Dutton and so forth. A better name might be ‘All Star’ – a great collection of sources artfully blended. It’s all here – apple, pear, citrus, soft oak spice, viscous entry, singing acidity and a long integrated finish. Extremely well-made wine, as always!” —Rich Cook, December 4, 2018

    2016 Wildcat Mountain Vineyard Chardonnay

    94 Points, Wine & Spirits
    Steve MacRostie planted this vineyard in 1998, at elevations rising to 700 feet in the Petaluma Gap. The soils are volcanic, the cool winds and fog accounting for the crunchy brightness of this wine’s flavors. It has the white-flower scent of fresh cream, that creaminess incorporated into the elegant texture. The ripe lime flavors last with the blue-sky clarity of the coast. —Joshua Greene, April 2018

    92 Points, Wine Advocate
    “The 2016 Wildcat Mountain Vineyard Chardonnay delivers notes of white peaches, ripe Golden Delicious apples and Bosc pears with hints of allspice, shaved almonds and chalk dust. The palate nails it with intense yet elegantly played apple and pear flavors, accented with plenty of toast and spice, and gives a long, refreshing finish. 1,595 cases produced.” —Lisa Perrotti-Brown, April 27, 2018

    “Carneros’ highest elevation brings us a spicy, brightly acidic Pinot Noir with a lively nose of tart cherry, rhubarb and spice, all coming through as palate flavors in typical MacRostie style – there’s real food friendly verve here, with a touch of stemmy character adding depth without interfering with the purity of the fruit. Holiday fare awaits a deserving partner.” —Rich Cook, December 4, 2018
