One bottle each of the following wines, priced at 5% off retail:
2016 De Lancellotti Chardonnay Anderson Vineyard Direct
$50 / bottle
WE 95 Points, Editor's Choice
From The Wine Enthusiast: "From the Anderson Vineyard, this grand cru site is an old vine, own rooted selection 96, that sits on a steep slope in Dundee hills AVA. You'll find bright aromas of pear and lemon zest leading to supple palate of fleshy fruit and bright acidity! Drink now."
2016 Trisaetum Chardonnay Ribbon Ridge Estate Direct
$50 / bottle
Vinous 93 Points
Former Louis Jadot winemaker Jaques Lardiere has been in residence at Trisaetum for several years, launching his Resonance brand and building a new winery. He convinced the Trisaetum clan to make chardonnay - and of course, they listened. Why not? Lariere's Jouis Jadot Corton Charlamagne is an industry benchmark chardonnay (and not the only one he makes). I'm not saying this tastes like Corton Charlamagne, but it's clear that Lariere has had some influence over the chardonnay production here.
From Vinous: "Very light yellow. Mineral-accented citrus and orchard fruit scents are complemented by buttered toast, iodine and fennel nuances. Juicy and precise on the palate, offering concentrated Meyer lemon, pear nectar, quinine and honeysuckle flavors sharpened by a jolt of smoky minerality. Smoothly blends depth and finesse and finishes impressively long and stony, revealing lingering pear and floral notes."
2016 Evening Land Chardonnay Eola-Amity Hills Seven Springs
$39 / bottle
WS 93 Points
From The Wine Spectator: "Graceful and elegantly complex, with alluring Meyer lemon and green apple flavors accented by wet stone and sweet anise notes on a lingering finish. Drink now through 2021."
2016 Eyrie Chardonnay Original Vines
$60 / bottle
Parker 93+ Points
From Parker's The Wine Advocate: "A barrel selection (from grapes in Eyrie's original vineyard, planted in 1965), the 2016 Chardonnay Original Vines has a wonderful perfume of chamomile and orange blossoms with notes of honey, hay and dried leaves. Medium to full-bodied and creamy textured, it offers up lovely honey, white flowers and soft lemon citrus flavors in the mouth with tangy, juicy acidity, finishing very long and layered with a streak of crushed rock minerality and a touch of phenolic texture. 150 cases produced."
2016 Lingua Franca Chardonnay Bunker Hill
WS 94 Points
From The Wine Spectator: "Sleek and seamlessly complex, featuring expressive floral lemongrass and steely mineral aromas and plush yet refined green apple and lemon flavors accented by spicy lees. Drink now through 2022."
2016 Arterberry Maresh Chardonnay Dux Vineyard
Parker 94 Points
From Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Chardonnay Dux Vineyard has a beautiful, layered nose of clotted cream, lemon confit, acacia flowers, yellow apples, honey and toast. Medium-bodied, it's wonderfully concentrated in the mouth with pure tree fruit flavors with toasty and floral accents. It's framed by very juicy acidity, finishing very long and nuanced with a great bit of phenolic texture. 125 cases produced."
