Reviews
• Vinous / Antonio Galloni: 90 Ryan Deovlet's 2016 Chardonnay Zotovich Family Vineyard is understated, persistent and impeccable in its balance. Lemon peel, white flower and mint notes are nicely lifted throughout. This is an especially linear, taut style but it works well, although personally I would prefer to see a bit more flesh on the mid-palate.
