94 POINTS - ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE

With this wine, we aim to craft a big, beautiful Napa Valley Chardonnay that showcases what our Estate vineyard is capable of producing. I am striving for texture and full flavors when I make the barrel selection. I am attracted attracted to clones that produce fruit of low yields but tremendous quality. The Lioness is dynamic and beautifully balanced with a lush texture that is complemented by a core of acidity running throughout.  WINERY

The 2016 Chardonnay The Lioness Estate was barrel fermented and aged for about 16 months before being bottled unfined and unfiltered. It features ripe grapefruit, pineapple and white peaches scents with hints of beeswax, toasted almonds and lemongrass. Full-bodied, concentrated and decadently fruited, the palate features a wonderfully refreshing line of freshness and long, creamy finish. 1,037 cases produced.  ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE
