"A luminous pale-straw complexion envelops the glass. In harmony, the wine offers pleasing aromatics of jasmine, Granny Smith apple, orange blossom, poached pear, honey-lemon, and roasted marshmallow. The entry is assertive with bright acidity that quickly softens to a largess of flavors including crème brulée, white peach, tangerine oil, honey-suckle, and roasted marshmallow. An engaging mineral note is present throughout the tasting juxtaposed with the right amount of supple texture to provide balance. The finish is lively and radiant with a stony tinge reflecting the provenance." —winemaker

Wine Anthology review:
Mannequin bears the general California appellation on its label, but its fruit is sourced from cool-climate vineyards specifically in Carneros and Sonoma Valley. The winemaking team selects parcels based on their potential to harmonize in the blend, adding dollops of Viognier, white Grenache, Marsanne, Muscat, and Roussanne to the main Chardonnay component. With nine months of aging in French oak, about half of it new, this 2014 comes tearing through with notes of grilled pineapple drizzled with honey, coupled with floral undertones and a bit of toasty brioche. Firmly set in the Orin Swift style, this big 2014 is for white wine lovers who like their Chardonnay to pack a punch!
"One of his most popular wines is the creatively packaged 2014 Chardonnay Mannequin. The label alone would draw plenty of interest. This wine, primarily Chardonnay with a few percent of Viognier, Grenache Blanc, Marsanne, Muscat and Roussane, was aged sur lie for nine months in 40% French oak. It is no shy wine at 15.5% alcohol and there is plenty of it – 8,073 cases, which is good because it is a hot-selling wine to say the least. This wine offers notes of brioche, white peach, honeysuckle and citrus oil in a full-bodied intense style, but with terrific acidity and rather restrained oak. The wine is rich, ripe and impressive. Drink it over the next 3-4 years." —Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
