98Wine Spectator

Satiny smooth, ultrarich and deeply complex, with layers of floral, butterscotch fig, apricot and pear flavors that are impeccably balanced.

95Robert M. Parker Jr.

Orange blossom, marzipan, citrus oil, crushed stones, and a touch of smoky scents emerge from this full-bodied 2001. It offers beautiful honeyed richness, great definition, and a long finish. I even noticed a hint of papaya.

93Stephen Tanzer

Subdued but very pure aromas of pineapple, clove and minerals. The fruit and mineral character emerged with aeration, and the finish is wonderfully full, sweet and long.


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.
