My oh my, how this beauty has developed. Rita's fruit...crazy salinity. Like being in the vineyard early in the morning. Maritime madness. Savory beach ambiance on nose. Lemon dug deep. Little lime on palate. Meursault weight, with a lemony curd finish that goes to a slaty, wet stone clean finish. Mark, you're a genius

Truly delicious- zero ML- candied apple spice - great tension, definition, and concentration. Mark Horwath - winemaker in background. 95-96+ (even better than 2012)

Excellent example of a Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay. No ML so no "butter." Great job by Mark Horvath.
