Great wines speak to both sides of your brain. They are cerebral yet artistic, rational yet hedonistic. Take our 2016 McIntyre Estate Vineyard Chardonnay. For the analytical left side, there is precision, structure and minerality. For the intuitive right side, there is texture, opulence and concentration. For both sides there are lush impressions of toast, crème brûlée, oak and grilled almonds. Great wine.

Wine Profile
Ratings
Planet Grape "92 Points: Creamy, flavorful and fresh with notes of buttered rye toast, baked apple and peach, and lemon zest for balance. " 90 Points: Offering slightly more richness and depth, with notes of melon, white flowers, and peach, the 2016 Chardonnay McIntyre Estate Vineyard is also medium-bodied, has good mid-palate density, and a fleshy, forward style. It too is ideal for drinking over the coming 3-4 years. (Jeb Dunnuck) 94 Points: Aromas of Meyer lemon curd, green apple. Flavors of star fruit, green apple, crushed oyster shell, well balanced between fruit and mineral characteristics. Expressive, beautiful and wonderful representation of the Santa Lucia Highlands (James the Wine Guy)
