94Wine Enthusiast

...beautiful nose of integrated, pungent oak that presents as caramel apple—a quiet richness that complements its delicate layering of Meyer lemon and salty wet stone. The acidity is both fresh and complex, supportive and subtle.

93Vinous / IWC

…decidedly powerful, phenolic wine. Orchard fruit, lemon confit, almonds and lightly tropical notes run through this intense, structured Chardonnay.

92+ John Gilman

...nascently complex bouquet of apple, nectarine, a touch of pink grapefruit, spring flowers, a fine base of soil and a subtle framing of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is crisp, full-bodied and still tightly-knit, with a fine core of fruit, lovely transparency, bright, zesty acids and excellent focus and grip on the long, well-balanced and promising finish.

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.


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.
