RATINGS

93Wine Spectator

Well-structured and powerful, this is filled with ripe white fruit flavors, lathered in creamy richness. Tropical fruit hints emerge midpalate, with a plush, spicy finish.

92The Wine Advocate

...opens with baked quince, peaches, honeycomb, almonds and a touch of baker's yeast...palate is medium-bodied, concentrated and savory with uplifting freshness and a long, honeyed finish.

90Jeb Dunnuck

...rich, medium to full-bodied style with background oak in its orchard fruits, buttered citrus, and honeysuckle aromas and flavors.

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.
