A nose of Meyer lemon with hints of honeycomb and orange blossom. Oyster shell, wet stone with a kiss of struck int. Rich with acidity and elegance. Textural with an everlasting nish.

All barrel fermented and brought up in just under 40% new French oak, the 2018 Chardonnay One Sixteen has a big bouquet of buttered lemons, peach, tart pineapple, spice, and toasted bread. Beautifully textured, elegant, and seamless on the palate, with both good acidity and concentration, it's another beautiful wine from this team. I think the El Diablo Vineyard will be longer-lived (and maybe have more upside), but this is brilliant.

Well-structured, with crisp, minerally verve to the freshly cut green apple and nectarine flavors. Lots of buttery pastry notes show on the lively, pure-tasting finish. Drink now through 2024. 2,900 cases made.
