Winemaker Notes

Rich layers of apricot, peach, almond and lemon drop are seamlessly integrated with yeasty and floral notes, highlighted by vibrant acidity. This balanced and complex wine is beautiful now but will continue to unfurl over the next several years.

Critical Acclaim

RP 95
The Wine Advocate

The 2008 Chardonnay is one of the finest Chardonnays of the vintage. Beautiful aromas of honeysuckle, brioche, white peaches, orange marmalade, and citrus blossoms soar from the glass of this light gold/green-hued wine. A terrific texture, full-bodied mouthfeel, and hints of hazelnuts as well as honey give this cuvee lots of flesh, depth, and richness. It should drink well for 5-8+ years.

WS 93
Wine Spectator

Smooth and rich, with tiers of smoky, toasty oak, ripe fig, melon, honeysuckle, roasted marshmallow and hazelnut. Full-bodied, intense and concentrated, offering a long, persistent finish that keeps gaining depth. Drink now through 2015. 2,002 cases made.

ST 90
International Wine Cellar

Good medium yellow. Fresh pineapple and peach on the nose, along with a more tropical quality and a floral element; fruitier than the Sonoma Coast bottling. Chewy, supple and dense, with a slightly phenolic aggressiveness to the somewhat saline flavors of white plum and pineapple. A bit less suave and energetic than the Sonoma Coast bottling, finishing with an almost tannic impression.
