From the cooler Eola-Amily Hills, also on volcanic soils, this opens with alluring aromas of petrichor and more time in the glass reveals smoky Mirabelle plums and radiant freshness. This vivid brightness is also apparent on the concentrated and beautifully textured palate, with convincing structure and poise. Fermented in both steel and wood, this is sophisticated, sprightly and utterly mouthwatering.-DM

James Suckling 92
This has a very convincing core of stony, minerally elements with bright, yellow citrus fruit that leads to a palate that has a stony, dense and fresh feel. Good weight and texture, wrapping tight and dry.-JS

Wine Enthusiast 92
The wines from Drouhin's Roserock vineyard, in the Eola-Amity Hills AVA, offer a nice counterpoint to the more familiar Dundee Hills bottlings. This young wine is smooth and supple, with medium ripeness. Lemon, peach and pear fruit flavors combine gracefully, with a toasty wrap pulling the wine into focus.-WE

RObert Parker's Wine Advocate 91
Aged 10 months in about 15 new oak, the 2017 Chardonnay gives scents of apple pie, Meyer lemon and quince with notes of crushed stone, toast and Greek yogurt. Light to medium-bodied and silky, it has restrained, minerally fruits with juicy acidity and a long finish. This could use another year in bottle to put on a touch of weight.-RP

WIne Spectator 90
Delicately spirited, with lively apple, pear and spice flavors that build toward a polished finish. Drink now.-WS

Robert

Price point is too high

"This is an enjoyable wine, best served at a higher temperature than is typical for a Chardonnay. At 58 degrees it seems pleasant but unremarkable. As it warms it feels more nuanced. Too expensive."
