"Aromas of tangerines, nectarines and green apples emerge from the 2013 Chardonnay Chalk Hill Estate Vineyard. Medium-bodied with a hint of wet rock minerality, this pure beauty’s striking style appears to traverse both Chablis and a leaner white Burgundy. Drink it over the next 3-4 years.  One of the iconic wineries of Sonoma Valley is Rodney Strong Vineyards. I remember first raving about the 1974 Alexander’s Crown Cabernet Sauvignon that Rodney Strong produced. It was one of those transformational Cabernet Sauvignons that indicated what incredible fruit and quality could come from Alexander Valley."
Rated 90/100 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
