The sylphlike 2018 Staglin Chardonnay is a delicately concentrated elixir of generously ripe yellow citrus and peak apricot nestled in light meringue drizzled with liquefied butterscotch spiced by faint hints of ginger, nutmeg and fractured vanilla bean pod. This vibrant wine glides across the palate in a near perfect balance, at once both rich and lean, that persists with an invitingly long finish of ephemeral delight.

Young and unevolved, the 2018 Chardonnay Estate offers fresh, lively bouquet of honeyed peach and lemon oil-like notes interwoven with plenty of toasted bread, spice, and white flowers. It's clean, medium-bodied, and elegant on the palate, and it shows the supple, elegant, approachable style of the vintage nicely. It's going to benefit from a year in bottle and should evolve nicely for 3-5 years. This estate continues to produce a brilliant, high-class Chardonnay well worth seeking out.

The 2018 Chardonnay Estate is just gorgeous. Bright and focused in the glass with striking richness, the 2018 shows why Chardonnays from Rutherford can be so distinctive. Lemon confit, white flowers, mint and orchard fruit are all laced together in this very pretty and expressive Chardonnay. A touch of lees stirring and a bit of malolactic fermentation give the 2018 a hint of oiliness on the palate, but the style is all about brightness and energy.

Fine-textured, with minerally snap to the baked apple and pear tart flavors. Hints of white chocolate show midpalate, leading to a lusciously spiced finish. Drink now through 2023. 550 cases made.
