RATINGS

99Jeb Dunnuck

…offers a more marine-influenced bouquet, with lots of salty minerality as well as notes of sliced green apple, white peach, toasted almonds, and toasted bread...gorgeous concentration, flawless balance, and a great finish.

94Vinous / IWC

Tangerine, hazelnut, spice, lemon confit and sweet floral notes all open, framed by bright, saline underpinnings that confer energy as well as tension.

92+ The Wine Advocate

...flint, red apples and white blossoms with nutty nuances. The palate is silky, fresh and savory with mineral character lingering on the finish.

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.
