"Glistening, light lemon colored, the 2020 Block UU Chardonnay rests for 8 months in 29% new French oak puncheons starts off incredibly floral on the nose with additional notes of white peach, Meyer lemon zest, white mushroom, lemony herbs, and a touch of earthiness on the palate. I love the saline and fresh linen note that I get on the mid-palate. Incredible balance between the acidity, purity of fruit, and earthy notes, it’s a wine that is a fantastic buy for the price point. 728 cases made. Editor’s choice. "  - International Wine Report, 95 Points

"The 2020 Chardonnay Bien Nacido Vineyard Block UU is a regal, elegant wine.  Citrus, white flowers, mint, white pepper and jasmine are all finely cut in mid-weight, racy Chardonnaly that captures all the best this challenging year had to offer.  Beautifully textured, with fine balance and real pedigree, the UU is superb." - Vinous, 94 Points

"There's a steely minerality to the nose of this bottling alongside lime pith, jicama, white flower and Asian pear aromas. The palate is brisk, tightly wound and refreshing with crisp pear and lime flavors." - Wine Enthusiast, 93 Points 

"The 2020 Chardonnay Bien Nacido Vineyard Block UU, which spent a quick 8 months on lees, reveals a lively gold hue to go with pretty peach and tart pineapple-like fruits as well as white flowers and a hint of chalky minerality. Forward, fruit-loaded, and downright charming, drink this undeniably delicious Chardonnay over the coming couple of years." - JebDunnuck.com, 90 Points
