Robert Parker’s, Wine Advocate scores our 2016 vintage!

2016 Gap’s Crown Vineyard Chardonnay- 94 Points

“The 2016 Chardonnay Gap’s Crown Vineyard offers up aromas of citrus pith, preserved lemon, toasted nuts and smoke. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied, glossy and textural from lees contact, with racy acids, lovely tension and chalky grip on the finish. This is a very successful Chardonnay.”

2016 Gap’s Crown Vineyard Pinot Noir- 92 Points 

“The 2016 Pinot Noir Gap’s Crown Vineyard reveals complex aromas of rose hip, red cherry, plum, blood orange and sweet soil. On the palate, it’s sappy and medium to full-bodied, structured around fine-grained tannins, with a deep, rich core balanced by tangy acids that linger on the delicately chewy finish.”

2016 Sanford & Benedict Vineyard Chardonnay- 92+ Points

“‘The 2016 Chardonnay Sanford & Benedict Vineyard wafts from the glass with aromas of lemon oil, grapefruit, citrus blossom and white currants. On the palate, the wine is supple, medium-bodied and delicately textured, with lovely purity and chalky back-end grip.”

2016 Sanford & Benedict Vineyard Pinot Noir- 93+ Points  

“The 2016 Pinot Noir Sanford & Benedict Vineyard is the most promising candidate for cellaring of all these reds from Lutum, offering up attractive aromas of cherry, raspberry, currant leaf and aromatic bark, followed by a medium to full-bodied, layered palate with juicy acids, a nice sense of completeness, and a firm, chewy finish which will soften with a little bottle age.”
