2018 Tiers Vineyard 1.5M Chardonnay – 94 points, Silver

Brian Croser’s ode to his halcyon youth when California first convinced him that high quality chardonnay was indeed possible outside of Burgundy. This rich, fully flared chardonnay hails from a younger plot of the famed Tiers vineyard, tended lower to the ground and planted to earlier ripening French clones at tighter densities. This encourages competition among vines and with that, higher quality fruit. Mid-weighted, with seams of toasty oak corralling ample stone fruit allusions, scents of toasted hazelnut and praline. This needs patience for the shins and elbows to settle. When they do, it will stun.
