The 2018 Chardonnay Katherine's Vineyard is a gentle, open-knit wine. Soft contours and the tropical accents typical of Santa Maria give the 2018 a very pretty sense of immediacy. Airy and gracious, with terrific precision, the Katherine's Chardonnay is classy through and through. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, August 2020)

Redolent of tangerines. Vanilla and flint after a couple days but surprisingly vivacious

Straw with aromas of nice ripe fruit and spice notes. On the palate peach and tropical fruit flavors with a big jolt of citrus and oak. Well balanced lingering finish ending with wet mineral stone. Nice value.

Delicious. Fruity, very acidic and leaves your mouth watering. Bright and smooth, crisp and tantalizing

I'm so impressed. For a mass brand this is great! Honey, tea, and jasmine with bright acid and a great balance. I love this wine!!
