    Winemaker's Notes:

    The estate vineyard has a long, successful history with Chardonnay. The wines tend to possess excellent concentration without losing their structural integrity. The key aromas and flavors in our 2009 include Fuji apples, citrus, pineapple, butter, warm toast and vanilla. The finish is crisp and lingering. The combination of intensity and freshness make this a good companion to roasted chicken, baked fish or young cheeses.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This opens round and toasty, presenting green fig and sweet pineapple flavors that run through a rainwater-fresh finish. It closes on the stony savor of a pebble in the mouth, the fruit ending tart and firm. A wine to buy by the case and serve with grilled head-on shrimp, langoustines or other fruits de mer. This is the first vintage made by Paul Warson, who had been at Trefethen before coming to Firestone in 2009.

    I normally love Santa Ynez, but this was awful. I tried the second bottle and it was just as bad. Not sure if I just did not like it or there was something wrong the wine. Oh well...
