95+ points Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Chardonnay Dux Vineyard has an open nose of crushed stone, dried hay, tarragon, roasted hazelnuts, citrus blossoms and spring honey with notes of sliced mushrooms and a light framing of spice. Medium-bodied and silky, it gives layer after layer of ripe, spicy fruits refreshed by tangy acidity, finishing very long and minerally with tremendous tension. I can't wait to taste this with a few years of bottle age!"
95 points Vinous: "Fresh honeydew, Meyer lemon, pear, jasmine and toasted brioche on the expressive, mineral-accented nose. Juicy and expansive on the palate, offering intense citrus and orchard fruit, sweet butter and anise flavors and an energizing suggestion of ginger. Shows superb energy and mineral cut on the penetrating finish, which features a suave floral quality and a briny touch of oyster shell."
