Winemaker Notes

The family vineyards are my father's legacy and I get so much joy from crafting wines from our Home Ranch. I love the opulence of this wine, and the sun-kissed flavors of Sonoma County that it evokes. The 2009 Chardonnay has aromas of stone fruit, honeysuckle and a hint of chestnut. Flavors of ripe tropical fruit are accented by notes of toasted marshmallow and a bright acidity that lingers into the finish.

Critical Acclaim

V 92
Vinous / Antonio Galloni

The 2009 Chardonnay Home Ranch impresses for its layered fruit and elegant personality. This is a pretty laid-back Chardonnay from Sbragia, but it all works, and beautifully. This is a striking showing. The Home Ranch was aged in French oak barrels, 50% new, with full malolactic fermentation.

The Wine Advocate

Ed Sbragia told me he has backed off the expensive oak he often used while making the Beringer Chardonnays and one can see that with the brilliant 2009 Chardonnay Home Ranch. Another great value, it offers terrific notes of nectarines, tangerines, honeysuckle and white peaches. This medium to full-bodied Chardonnay went through full malolactic and spent time in 30% new oak, which works beautifully with the fruit Sbragia is getting from his Dry Creek Vineyard.

Wine Spectator

Rich and creamy, yet light and delicate on its feet, with pear, fig, citrus and honeysuckle notes that gain depth, ending with a light toasty oak aftertaste. Drink now through 2017.
