RATINGS

94Wine Enthusiast

Robustly layered in crisp apple, lime and wet stone, this wine offers an intensity on the midpalate of grit and grip before easing into a thirst-quenching fistful of acidity.

93+ The Wine Advocate

...aromas of orange blossom, honey toast, hazelnut and cream over a core of baked Golden Delicious apple and white stone fruits with mineral hints. Medium-bodied, it has great texture in the mouth with concentrated stone fruits accented by nutty and toasty flavors, with wonderful juicy acidity and a long, minerally finish.

92Vinous / IWC

...wonderfully focused and vibrant in the glass. Bright lemon peel, white flowers, mint and chalk create a palpable sense of energy and tension.

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.
