97 points The Wine Advocate: "The 2021 Chardonnay Cuvée Tan Fruit comes from Dijon vines in the Maresh Vineyard, planted on a south-facing slope in 1991, plus a number of other sources around Willamette Valley. Bottled a few months earlier than the other Tan Fruit Chardonnays, its savory aromas explode from the glass: a core of peachy fruit is streaked with touches of candle smoke, matchstick, pie crust and floral tones. Medium-bodied, seamless and satiny, it flows effortlessly through the mouth with both depth of flavor and freshness. It has a pleasing touch of grip to anchor the long finish and feels like it has more to give as it unwinds in bottle over the next several years. Around 1,000 cases were made."
A blend of roughly 35% Dundee Hills, 40% Eola-Amity Hills, 25% Yamhill-Carlton and 10% Chehalem Mountains. Pretty nose of apricot, yellow apples and river rock. Bone dry, chiseled and fresh with yellow orchard fruit.
