Wine AdvocateSlightly darker in color than the Canoe Ridge Estate and showing a touch more oak in its buttered stone fruit aromas and flavors, the 2014 Chardonnay Cold Creek Vineyard (100% Chardonnay aged nine months in 51% new French oak) is medium-bodied, textured, rich and lengthy on the palate. It lacks a touch of the integration of the Canoe Ridge Estate release, but it has more richness and texture.

Wine SpectatorBright and refreshing, playing apple and grapefruit flavors against a polished texture, lingering on the deftly balanced finish. Drink now. 2,750 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastBarrel notes of toast and spice intermingle with stone fruit aromas and flavors that show nuance. The flavors are light but the feel is compelling.
