The 2019 Chardonnay Watson Ranch is open-knit and seductive. Orchard fruit, chamomile, spice and dried herbs all meld together in a pliant Chardonnay that offers a striking mix of textural richness and energy. Watson Ranch is the southernmost vineyard in Napa Valley, a cool-climate pocket that yields a Chardonnay of real distinction. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, January 2021)

A crisp and steely fragrance of honeysuckle, oak and apricot.
Drinks nice and crisply, with flavors of buttery oak, honeysuckle and apricot. — 11 days ago
Much better than the last time I tasted this 2 years ago. More balanced now. Creamy tropical fruit with vanilla and green apple flavors too. — 2 days ago
Deep yellow color and strong aromas of vanilla, stone fruits. Wonderful strong, rich flavors of vanilla, oak, with subtle background of citrus lending acidity to keep it light and very drinkable. Not too oaky or buttery, everything to love about California Chardonnay! — 4 days ago
YES!!! The standard of what a California Chardonnay should be. Oaky and buttery, but in just the right amount. Light and fresh. A splurge to be sure, but life is short, treat yourself! — 3 days ago
