2016 Charles Smith 'Sixto' Uncovered Chardonnay, Washington State, USA (750ml)
The 2016 Chardonnay Uncovered is another rich, medium to full-bodied effort from this team that has ample toast and orchard fruit-like aromas, a fleshy, supple texture, good acidity, and a clean finish. It’s well worth the going rate and has a great mix of both richness and freshness.
-Jeb Dunnuck, 92 pts
A blend of three mature plots, this has a fleshy and creamy peach core with a gentle almond edge to the nose. A fresh palate with underlying acidity that holds the finish in place. Tastes very complete.
-James Suckling, 91 pts
Coming from the three different vineyards of the range—Moxee, Frenchman Hills and Roza Hills—the 2016 Chardonnay Uncovered sees different climatic conditions in each location, which adds something different to the blend. The nose has a streak of finesse with fresh-cut apples, lemon blossom and lemon custard with a soft dustiness in the glass. The wine is full-bodied, rich and spicy on the palate, with balanced acidity, then is concentrated and a touch hot on the long finish. 2,362 cases were made.
-Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 90 pts
This is what you get when you combine the three best Chardonnay vineyards in Washington State. Sumptuous and graceful, it gives up its flavors of guava, lemon curd, orange blossoms as the palate expands with more and more of the copious good stuff. Good. Compelling. So complete
