"The 2018 Chardonnay Trout Gulch is loaded with personality and class. Citrus, dried flowers, mint and sage are some of the many nuances that grace this Chardonnay from the southern reaches of the Santa Cruz Mountains. In 2018, the Trout Gulch has more overt body and less of the sizzling cut it has had in some previous editions, which means it will drink nicely with just another year or two in bottle. There is still plenty of energy, but more mid-palate depth and less austerity than in some years. Drink: 2020-2028. 93 points

California is a hotbed of talent these days. Even so, I can't think of too many producers who excel with so many different varieties and wines as Duncan Arnot and Nathan Roberts do. This range is full of highlights. The reds are especially strong this year, led by the stunning Coastlands Pinot, three rock-star Syrahs and a trio of 2017 Cabernets that capture all the best that challenging year had to offer. As always, the wines are built on energy and vibrancy, with a good bit of whole cluster influence in the Pinots and Syrahs."
