Arista Winery Chardonnay, Banfield Vineyard, Russian River Valley — 2018 – Vinous – 93 Points
The 2018 Chardonnay Banfield Vineyard is wonderfully deep and fleshy. Soft contours give the Banfield much of its immediacy. Tangerine peel, lemon confit, almond, dried flowers and mint fill out the layers nicely. This creamy, highly expressive Chardonnay has quite a bit to offer.
