Wine Enthusiast

"The 2008 Chardonnay, Conservancy is a wonderfully expressive wine that is rich and creamy yet fresh. Ripe tree fruit flavors of peach, pear and guava show on the nose and palate. Hints of lemon, herbs and brioch balance out the fruitiness, and there is a creamy and nuanced finish."
-Steve Heimoff
