WINEMAKER NOTES
The dramatic landscape of the Sonoma Coast, with its steep hillsides and windswept foothills, gives us a diverse profile of welldraining soils, while direct proximity to the Pacific Ocean results in a long, cool growing season. These extreme coastal conditions allow us to produce a layered Chardonnay with bright fruit focus, complex minerality and crystalline acidity. Our Sonoma Coast Chardonnay is sourced from a small selection of family-owned sites, including our estate Camp Meeting Ridge Vineyard.

The 2017 growing season began with sustained and intense rainfall. Prolonged heat in July was followed by much-needed cooler weather in August allowing for complex flavor development. Strong heat in September brought challenges, but our dry-farmed vines were able to thrive in the warm conditions. Cool marine air arrived just in time for harvest, a welcome respite for a challenging growing season

Alcohol: 13.5%
94 POINTS - "Aromas of sliced apples, lemon curd and hints of pineapple. Full-bodied with peach and pineapple flavors. Layered and beautiful. Lovely tannic tension. Flavorful finish. Savory." James Suckling

91 POINTS - "This well-made, widely appealing wine is inviting in jasmine and orange-blossom aromas, with a tension of energy and focus in its well-integrated acidity. The oak is behaved and quietly complementary, boosting the hints of nutmeg and gingerbread." Wine Enthusiast

90 POINTS - "The 2017 Chardonnay Sonoma Coast gives subtle notes of ripe pears, allspice and applesauce with pineapple and lemon juice sparks plus a hint of baking bread. Medium-bodied, elegant and refreshing, it has a lovely creaminess to the texture and touch of nutmeg on the savory finish." Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Vibrant aromas of honeysuckle and citrus blossom are balanced with rich flavors of Meyer lemon, pear, lemon custard and wet stone. Subtle oak notes of sugar cookie and vanilla round out a rich mouthfeel with a long, full finish.
