95 Points                                                                      Fantastic new small-production Chardonnay from exciting new producer Westwood. 95 Points Jeb Dunnuck: "The single vineyard 2017 Chardonnay Sangiacomo Vineyard comes from a site on the Sonoma Coast and was fermented and aged 8 months in 30% new French oak. It’s a more racy, salty, vibrant effort that has terrific white flowers, orange blossom, and honeyed citrus notes as well as medium to full-bodied richness. Balanced, layered, and just a great example of the rich yet racy style that’s prevalent in the vintage, it’s going to benefit from a year in bottle and I suspect have a decade of longevity." This complex Chardonnay has bright aromatics of lemon curd,freshly cut feijoa, orange blossom, tarragon, raw honey and asubtle touch of flinty notes. On the palate it has a brilliant citrus entry, lemon lime acidity throughout, contrasted beautifully with powerful texture from aging on the lees and a satisfying long finish of lemon tart.
