2017 | Stonestreet | Estate Vineyards | Alexander Valley | Sonoma
94 Points Wine & Spirits - Lisa Valtenbergs blends this wine from parcels on the Jackson family's Alexander Mountain Estate, a 5,500-acre property on the western slopes of the Mayacamas Mountains. This is a classic California chardonnay in the best sense: A fresh, oak-guided beauty in shades of green-gold and white. Oak contributes a hint of butterscotch sweetness to an otherwise savory wine, layering scents of white roses, apples and wildflower honey through a lasting finish. The wine feels gracious, perplexing, intense and pure.
