2020 "Ma Jolie" Chardonnay
Peake Ranch Vineyard, JD 96 Points
""The 2020 Chardonnay Ma Jolie Peake Ranch Vineyard is another Sta. Rita Hills release, and it spent 16 months in 63% new barrels. Lemon curd, white flowers, chalky minerality, charcoal, and some classy oak all define this beauty’s bouquet, and it's medium to full-bodied, has a balanced, seamless mouthfeel, good acidity, and a great, great finish. It's another spectacular effort from Paul Lato that readers will love. Drink bottles over the coming 4-6 years."
