Far Mountain Myrna Chardonnay Sonoma 2019 750ml
Antonio Galloni writes: The 2019 Chardonnay Myrna shows just how compelling the vintage is for white wines. Lemon oil, white flowers, chalk and mint give the 2019 a brilliant upper register that almost comes as a surprise once the wine shows its superb depth and persistence. This highly expressive, nuanced Chardonnay has a lot going on and plenty to offer. - Vinous 94
James Suckling writes: A polished, minerally chardonnay with sliced apple, lemon rind and some stone and flint. Laurel and other herbs, too. It’s medium-to full-bodied with a creamy texture and balance. Phenolic texture. Lively and stony. From mountain vineyards in Sonoma and Mount Veeder. Nice debut wine. Drink or hold. - James Suckling 94
Jeb Dunnuck writes: Ripe melon, honeyed stone fruits, and spicy oak notes emerge from the 2019 Chardonnay Sonoma Valley, a classic, medium to full-bodied, layered, rounded Chardonnay that stays pure, balanced, and lenghthy. Another impressive wine from this estate, it should evolve for 3-5 years, probably longer. - Jeb Dunnuck 94
Jancis Robinson writes: Deep straw colour. Zesty, mandarin fruit with some pear-juice sweetness. Finishes a little suddenly. Well made but arguably it could do with a little more grunt and character. But I am probably being far too picky. Jancis Robinson 16
