"Crisp yellow lemon peel, wet stone and just-ripe pear make for an engaging nose of this bottling. The palate is both tightly wound and generous, offering mandarin orange and lemon blossom flavors on a zesty frame. " - Wine Enthusiast, 94 Points 

"Brought up in one-third new French oak, the 2020 Chardonnay Tinaquaic Vineyard is more serious, with deeper aromatics of orchard fruits, toasted bread, and honeyed minerality. It's rich, medium-bodied, has good concentration, and a bright spine of acidity. It should age gracefully." - JebDunnuck.com, 93 Points 

"Aged for eight months sur lie in 33% new French oak puncheons and presents a lovely golden lemon core with a silver rim. It explodes with honey-coated pear, Honeydew melon, sweet cinnamon, and white tea tones, while the mouthwatering palate gifts flavors of dried mango and dried herbs. Medium to full-bodied, with racy acidity and a wonderfully long finish, this is a wine that should age wonderfully for the next 7-10 years.  468 cases were produced. " - International Wine Report, 93 Points

"The 2020 Chardonnay Tinaquaic Vineyard Estate Grown – Dry Farmed is such a distinctive wine.  Melon, pear, baked apple, spice and chamomile open nicely in the glass, but what impresses most about the Tinaquaic Chardonnay is its understatement and nuance. Silky and caressing, the 2020 is a fine choice for drinking now and over the next handful of years." - Vinous, 92 Points
