"90 Points, Year's Best CA Chardonnays"


Patrick Comiskey recommended the 2018 J. Lohr Arroyo Vista Chardonnay, "90 Points" in the “Year’s Best California Chardonnay” section of the October 2020 issue of Wine & Spirits.

J. Lohr's Arroyo Vista vineyard is sunny but windswpt, and the wind seems to cut into the warmth of this wine. It smells of warm apples and sweetened milk, forward and powerful, and yet the texture seems to compress all that opulence, the caramel and cinna-mon notes staying with the fruit, balancing the rich-ness.
