"The 2018 Chardonnay (Santa Barbara County) is a gorgeous appellation-level wine. Light tropical notes, lemon confit, white flowers, tangerine and mint are all pushed forward. Oily and nicely textured in the glass, the Santa Barbara Chardonnay has a lot to offer. It is also a fabulous value." -AG, Sep/2019
