2014 vintage notes
95 points Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Chardonnay Richard's Cuvee knocks it out of the park with a nose of ripe apricots, pink grapefruit and guava underscored by fresh ginger, baking bread, beeswax and yeast extract hints with a waft of jasmine. Medium-bodied, the palate is very elegant and refined, with incredible freshness and depth wrapped in a lovely satiny texture, finishing with long lasting mineral and spices layers. Wow!"
Consistently one of Oregon's standout Chardonnays. We felt that way when we tasted the first vintage (2010); each vintage has been progressively, stupefyingly better. There's a wonderful transparency and openness to the aromas - what you sniff is what you'll taste. It balances my favorite components - mouthwatering citrus (lemon, kaffir lime, and tangerine), golden orchard fruits, delicate floral highlights, persistent minerality, perfect balance. - Marcus
