93 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"This is an impressive and appealing vineyard-designate from the heart of the appellation, able to capture a well-integrated core of flavor and texture. Stone fruit, apple and pear give it a fleshy richness around full-bodied structure and a lengthy finish of baking spice and oak." -VB, 3/1/20

92 Points - Wine Advocate
"The 2017 Pratt Vineyard Vine Hill Road Chardonnay is youthfully shy, slowly giving up notions of apricot, white peach, dried hay and chamomile with hints of hazelnut, toast and flint. Medium-bodied, plush, rounded and silky, it bursts with toasty, savory fruits opposed by mouthwatering acidity and finishing long and toasty. 223 cases produced." -EB, 12/19/19

90 Points - Wine Spectator
"Oaky richness accents the ripe apple and pear flavors. Buttery midpalate, with notes of dried sage on the spicy finish. Drink now through 2023. 300 cases made." -KM, 2020
