Wine AdvocateThe keenly priced 2016 Chardonnay Canoe Ridge Estate Vineyard wafts from the glass with aromas of buttered apples, lemon oil and citrus blossom. On the palate, it's medium-bodied, ample and succulent, with decent concentration and a pure, fragrant finish.
Wine EnthusiastVanilla aromas are out front on first pour, along with notes of baking spice and cream, with the wood seeming prominent. Somewhat-lighter-styled stone fruit flavors follow, with the flavors focused around the middle.
