95 Points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Offering tons of ripe, caramelized orchard fruits, honeycomb and crushed rock, the 2014 Chardonnay Hapgood is full-bodied, concentrated and unctuously textured, with notable freshness, no hard edges and a great finish. This is a rich, gorgeous Chardonnay to enjoy over the coming decade or more." -JD
93 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous. "The 2014 Chardonnay Hapgood shows the more exotic, flamboyant side of Chardonnay. A host of tropical fruit, mango, apricot jam and butter give the wine much of its shape and personality. Overt and opulent, yet also remarkably vivid, the Hapgood is superb today."
Notes from the winery: Located across the road from our Machado vineyard and is situated immediately next to the Acin parcel at the end of Hapgood Road. In slightly richer soil, the vineyard is planted to the Mount Eden selection of chardonnay. The elevated clay loam content results in larger volume and a more dense palate expression. All of the single vineyard wines are produced with the intention of aging and cellaring for at least 10 years and can easily be enjoyed after 15 years.
