Winemaker Notes

We seek out premium grapes from the Sonoma Coast that will produce wines reminiscent of the most respected wines of Burgundy. Our Chardonnay comes from five premium Sonoma growers: Bacigalupi, Fallen Leaf, Sangiacomo, Bonneau, and Haddad. The famed Sonoma Coast soils translate their mineral richness to the wines, imparting attractive flavor and character. Anabatic winds blow rather persistently throughout the summer and sunshine is abundant. Our 2007 grape harvest began early, slowed mid-way due to... View More

Critical Acclaim

WS 91
Wine Spectator

An elegant style, with ripe, creamy floral honeysuckle, pear and honeydew melon flavors that glide across the palate, followed by a long, full finish. Drink now through 2011.

Connoisseurs' Guide

Get ready to welcome the new kid on the block. Anaba is a new, limited-production winery in Sonoma. It is making both Rhône and Burgundian varieties, and if this Chardonnay is an indication, Anaba will specialize in balanced, rich yet mannerly wines. This one combines a fresh apple, almost Gala apple perfume with the more complex notes of roasted grains and creme brulee, and it is both slightly oily and bright and energetic on the palate. Its finish is a touch simple and ragged at this point, but time is clearly on its side, and we would not be afraid to lay this one down for at least two or three years.

On tranquil summer days, as golden sun kisses the valleys and hills of vineyards in Sonoma, unique air currents bring cooling breezes inland from the Pacific Ocean and San Pablo Bay. Wafting softly, with some gusts and gales, they glide through the vineyard rows. As they encounter steeper slopes and drift upward, they become anabatic winds. Soaring glider pilots rely on them for flight. We treasure them for the coolness they impart on their journey... View More

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked...

View More

The [Napa Valley] and [Cabernet Sauvignon] are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as [Rutherford’s] famous dust or [Stags Leap District's] tart cherry flavors.
