    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2010 Flowers Sonoma Coast Chardonnay is a pale straw color. Pretty aromas of lime blossom, meringue and lemon zest are mirrored on the palate and underscored with subtle notes of fresh cut fennel, lemon thyme, and crisp comice pear. With a bright and refreshing acidity, this Chardonnay finishes with a mouthwatering minerality that is typical of the extreme Sonoma Coast. Delicious now, or cellar through 2014.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2010 Chardonnay (Sonoma Coast), from a blend of six sites, is an unusual wine because of an exotic aromatic lift that recalls Sauvignon. Apricots, peaches, lemon, mint and savory herbs wrap around the textured, broad-shouldered finish. A vivid, striking wine, the 2010 is loaded with personality. This is an uncommonly delicious and compelling Sonoma Coast Chardonnay with more than enough structure to drink nicely for a number of years. The partially-blocked malo style adds freshness.

    Vinous / Antonio Galloni

    Rich and oaky, this has apricot, orange, vanilla and buttered toast flavors, with crisp acidity providing balance. It takes the popular Chardonnay style to an upper level in terms of the balance and the fanciness of oak.
