91-93 Points - "Jennifer's Pineapple, mint, butter, orange blossom and wild flowers are some of the signatures in the 2013 Jennifer's Chardonnay. This silky, perfumed Chardonnay should drink well for a number of years. The Jennifer's is one of the more overt, racy wines in this range, with flavors that tend towards the more tropical end of the spectrum, which is quite unusual considering the cool micro-climate in this part of the Petaluma Gap."

92-94 Points - "The 2013 Seascape Vineyard Chardonnay is quite a bit richer and oilier than the Jennifer's. Mango, pineapple, spices, butter and French oak blossom in a wine that captures a striking interplay of intense fruit allied to bright, piercing acidity. This is another impeccable, absolutely beautiful Chardonnay from Hartford Court."

True to its Carneros roots, the 2013 Sevens Bench Chardonnay carries the hallmark of the region – fruit intensity balanced by good acidity. The aromas are driven by classic lemon drop, Meyer lemon and a sweet tangerine character. That fruit style follows in the flavors, with the citrus focus carrying through with candied lemon drop balanced by the nice acidity and mineral characters inherent to the region and the clonal selections. Barrel fermentation characters are in the background, adding more complexity to this elegant wine.

95-97 Points - "The 2012 Chardonnay Far Coast Vineyard comes from a site located on a mountain ridge north of Fort Ross. It was fermented with indigenous yeasts, and bottled unfined and unfiltered after spending 15 months in one-third new oak. A blockbuster Chardonnay, it boasts intense aromas of mangoes, Mandarin oranges, pineapples and wet rocks along with noticeable minerality, full body, and stunning purity as well as symmetry. Enjoy it over the next 5-7 years."

92-94 Points - "The 2012 Chardonnay Fog Dance Vineyard is from a hillside location in Green Valley that experiences the frequent fogs that roll intothe ocean. It exhibits abundant notes of Mandarin oranges and citrus oil intermixed with a hint of smoke (one-third new French oak is utilized), and a full-bodied, rich, crisp,layered mouthfeel with great elegance as well as purity."

93-95 Points - "The 2012 Chardonnay Stone Côte Vineyard (a block within the Durrell Vineyard planted on gravelly riverbed soils) is 100% barrel-fermented and bottled unfined and unfiltered. It exhibits a terrific wet rock/powdered stone-like minerality along with beautiful aromas of exotic fruits (mangoes and tangerines), great intensity, full body, terrific acidity, and 14.8% alcohol. This beautiful Burgundian-styled Chardonnay should be enjoyed over the next 7-8 years."

90 Points - "Bright gold. Exotic perfume of nectarine, poached pear and orange, with a buttery undertone. Juicy, broad and concentrated, offering ripe pit and orchard fruit flavors with a sweetening touch of vanilla. Broader and lusher than the Stone Côte bottling but not lacking for energy. Finishes smooth and long, with building smokiness and minerality."
