92Vinous / IWC

Vibrant aromas of fresh honeydew, lime and lemongrass, with a subtle hint of honey in the background. Supple and expansive on entry, then firmer in the middle, with lively notes of melon, citrus pith, herbs and minerals. High-pitched but ample, offering a blend of richness and energy and finishing with excellent clarity and sappy persistence.

90Wine Spectator

...clean, crisp and flinty, displaying ripe green apple, citrus and subtle floral notes that are full-bodied, yet delicate and detailed.


Eric Kent Wine Cellars

Eric Kent Wine Cellars was founded by Kent Humphrey, a self-described “hyper-enthusiastic wine geek” who left careers in academia and advertising to start a wine venture with his wife, Colleen Teitgen. Humphrey sources grapes from Sonoma County and focuses on Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. Eric Kent hires artists to make distinctive labels for each wine, and the result is that the labels are different from vintage to vintage and wine to wine.


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.
