"The old vines at Olivet Lane were planted to a Wente selection in 1973. They focus this wine’s complexity on savory scents of honeycomb. The fruit has the fresh intensity of grated lemon zest, opening with air to become toasty, heady and rich."
Joshua Greene, Wine & Spirits Magazine, October 2019
“The 2016 Chardonnay Olivet Lane comes from a site in the Russian River, and it offers a big blast of pineapple and spiced orchard fruits, with plenty of background honeysuckle and hazelnut characteristics. Medium-bodied, nicely concentrated, and elegant on the palate, it’s not a powerhouse yet has a beautiful spine of acidity that carries through the finish. It’s a beauty.”
