“From cool site in the Santa Maria Valley and a barrel selection made in the cellar, the 2015 Chardonnay Sierra Madre Vineyard is a stunning, hedonistic, pedal-to-the-metal beauty that offers tons of stone fruits, buttered citrus, crushed rocks and honeysuckle aromas and flavors. Big, rich, layered and decadent, with a killer finish, it's a sensational Chardonnay that will compete with the best out there. Like the other cuvées, it’s made in tiny quantities and there’s just 326 cases out there.”

"Clean aromas of flint and smoke meet with Meyer lemon pith, a touch of tangerine and white flowers on the nose of this bottling by the new estate of John and Gill Wagner. There's bountiful texture to the sip, where slightly sour lemon and lime flavors are balanced by honeysuckle, wood chip, pecan
and rosemary-laced roasted-chicken flavors."

"The 2015 Chardonnay Sierra Madre Vineyard has intense pink grapefruit and lemon curd notes with hints of cedar, allspice and orange blossoms, plus a waft of baking bread. Medium to full-bodied, it offers a racy line of acid cutting through the rich, satin-textured citrus flavors, finishing on a savory note. 91+ points."
