Green apple and spicy pear aromas leap from the glass. Notes of Muscat and orange blossom waft around toasted hazelnut, clove, banana and fresh earth. Dense and mouth filling, the wine shows great acidic flow and a dynamic range of flavors. Tangerine, dried apricot, chai tea and crème caramel dart and weave through the long finish. Food Pairings: Lobster, scallops, artisan cheeses, stone crab.

Jeb DunnuckThe 2016 Chardonnay Dutton Ranch offers more honeyed citrus, orchard fruits, pineapple, and floral notes, with a gorgeous minerality developing with time in the glass. Medium-bodied, vibrant and fresh, with good acidity and building richness, it's classic all the way and a thrilling Chardonnay from this estate

Wine & SpiritsSelected from several old-vine blocks at Dutton Ranch, predominantly heirloom selections of chardonnay, this includes fruit from the original 1969 planting of the Rued selection by Warren Dutton. Those vines produced a floral 2016, with scents of wildflower honey and rose petals. Its fresh, pear-like fruit feels cool and zesty against the warm breadth of alcohol and savory oak tannins. Chill it for roast salmon.

Wine EnthusiastThis is a rich, layered wine offering sizable notions of oak within a powerful backdrop of Meyer lemon, melon and apple. It has dense concentration and richness that finds balance in underlying acidity and a mineral tease of crushed rock.

Wine SpectatorDensely packed, with flavors of Fuji apple, pear tart and dried peach swathed in spicy overtones. Sage honey hints show on the creamy finish.

Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Chardonnay Dutton Ranch gives up gregarious notes of nectarines, guava and passion fruit with suggestions of almond croissant and honeysuckle. The palate is medium to full-bodied with a lovely creaminess to the texture and oodles of freshness, finishing long and fruity. 10,051 cases produced.
