RATINGS

92James Suckling

Sliced apples, pears and lightly toasted oak on the nose and palate. Full-bodied, layered and juicy. Lovely, delicious finish.

90The Wine Advocate

...lovely honeyed peaches, apple pie and orange blossom with honeycomb and lemon drops plus croissant nuances...palate is medium-bodied and very fresh, with a satiny texture and a long, fruity finish.

90Jeb Dunnuck

...notes of tart citrus, lychee, and hints of minerality...medium-bodied, balanced, lively style on the palate.

REGION

United States, California, Sonoma, Sonoma Coast

Sonoma Coast AVA runs from San Pablo Bay in the south to Mendocino County in the north. It includes 7,000 vineyard acres and earned AVA status in 1987. Its proximity to the Pacific Ocean means it gets double the rainfall of nearby inland appellations and the ocean gives the appellation a relatively cool climate. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir can thrive in these conditions, and there are numerous producers making critically acclaimed Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.

TYPE

White Wine, Chardonnay

This white variety originated in Burgundy, but is now grown around the world. Its flexibility to thrive in many regions translates to wide flavor profile in the market. Chardonnay is commonly used in making Champagne and sparkling wines.
