2019 Zio Tony Ranch Russian River Valley Chardonnay

93 Points - Wine Spectator, January 2022
The 2019 Zio Tony Ranch Chardonnay is layered, complex and vibrantly expressive. Aromas of lime zest, roasted hazelnuts, summer melon, honeycomb/wax weave between spicy pear and green apple. The mouthfeel is rich and expansive while maintaining a lean, mineral tension, moving the rich, slightly oily mid-palate along to a mouthwatering, fresh finish. Zio Tony always rewards patient cellaring, where it gains smoothness, texture and additional complexity.
