James Suckling, 95 points
“This is a Dutton Ranch chardonnay, showing cooked-apple, lemon and peach character with praline and vanilla undertones. Opulent, yet in check. Full-bodied and layered. Very long and flavorful. No wood here. Fermented and aged in concrete eggs. Such a beautiful and pure single-vineyard Sonoma white. Drink or hold. Screw cap."

Our fingers tremble to type this. WOW! Martin Ray is on a serious roll of late, and it's truly hard to believe these prices for 95-POINT wine!! STOCK UP is putting it mildly!

We got our cases! You? This is utterly fine, rich, classic Dutton Chard that walks the line between racy freshness and creamy tropicality quite well. Citrus fruits abound, with creamy baked pear notes, white flowers and ripe stone fruits. At our “daily drinker” price today, it just ROCKS -- no other way to say it!! DON’T MISS!

TASTING NOTES 

“Vibrant Eureka lemon zest, fresh peach and racy minerality with touches of Acacia flower. Layers of subtle pear and under-ripe nectarine beneath mouthwatering acidity, over a clean, linear palate.”
