Notes from the Winemaker:

Our 2014 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay is one of the finest vintages of this wine we have ever made. In addition to reflecting the dazzling quality of the 2014 growing season, this vintage includes grapes from an exceptional new vineyard that was planted specifically for us by renowned winegrower Mark Sanchietti. Though it come s from a who’s who of world-class Sonoma Coast vineyards, the core of this Chardonnay is from Sanchietti Vineyard Pleasant Hill and Gap’s Crown, with the Sanchietti fruit adding richness an d texture and the Gap’s Crown grapes providing minerality and vibrant acidity. Blended with grapes from acclaimed vineyards like Parmalee Hill, Dutton Ranch and Durell Vineyard, this wine is beautifully complex with aromas and flavors of pineapple, guava, honeydew and lime zest, as well as secondary notes of toasted almond macaroon, cinnamon and sugar cookies. On the palate, it is plush and mouthfilling, flowing to a long, layered finish.

100% Chardonnay fruit
Whole cluster pressed
100% indigenous yeast fermentations (wild)

Ratings & Reviews

91 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2014 Chardonnay Sonoma Coast has a greenish hue, always a good sign as it seems to suggest chlorophyll and healthy grapes. The wine has hints of subtle pineapple, honeysuckle, green apple skin and citrus oil. It is medium-bodied and refreshing, with terrific fruit purity and a ripe, medium to full-bodied palate with zesty acidity. Drink it over the next 2-3 years." - Robert M. Parker, Jr. (Apr 2016)

91 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"Crafted from a range of vineyards, including Gap's Crown and some new sites in this vintage, this lovely, well-made and balanced wine is made in larger quantities than the producer's vineyard-designates and is enjoyable young. Creamy and full bodied at first, it evolves into cohesive flavors of baked pear, toasted almond and lemon-lime." - Virginie Boone (6/1/2016)

88 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Leaning a little too heavily on tart grapefruit flavors, this nonetheless represents a style well-suited for oysters, unfolding to reveal a core of white peach. Drink now. 13,500 cases made." – JL (Jun 15, 2016)
