- 95 Punkte VINOUS Antonio Galloni: "The 2016 Chardonnay Charles Heintz Vineyard is just as captivating today as it was a year ago. Tangerine, apricot, chamomile and lightly honeyed notes all run through this creamy, wonderfully nuanced Chardonnay. Open-knit and seductive, the 2016 will be hard to resist on release."
- 94 Punkte JEB DUNNUCK: "The 2016 Chardonnay Charles Heintz Vineyard was barrel fermented (10% was in stainless steel) and is a vibrant, medium-bodied, downright pretty Chardonnay from winemaker Ted Lemon. Citrus, dried citrus peel, dried herbs, and hints of lemon curd all emerge from this medium-bodied effort that?s impeccably balanced. It?s going to keep for a decade."- 96 Punkte JAMES SUCKLING: "Very attractive freshness and purity of lemons and limes here that lead to a subtly biscuity and very succulent palate with a juicy array of lemon and yellow-grapefruit flavors and white-peach nuances. Intensely focused, zesty finish. Drink or hold."
- DECANTER, Stephen Brook: "Littorai has been buying fruit from this elevated Sonoma Coast vineyard since the 1990s. The nose is bright and lemony, intense and perfumed, showing some stylish oak. There's a good attack with bright acidity and zesty pungency, giving a lively and refreshing style that's also elegant. Still very youthful, and with a long finish. Drinking Window 2019 ? 2026"
