Another highlight in this range, the 2017 Chardonnay Trout Gulch is stellar. Bright and focused, as it always is, the 2017 offers a striking interplay of tension and fruit density. Lemon peel, white flowers, mint and chalk are all beautifully delineated in this saline, finely-sculpted Chardonnay. The 2017 is going to need a few years to come into its own, but it is positively striking, even in the early going.See detailed press review
