Winemaker's Notes

(From 2012 Vintage) Pale gold color. Enticing, airy aromas of lemon zest and lime blossom are brought back to earth with those of bayleaf and wet flint. Fresh flavors of Asian pear and Honeycrisp apple are supported by abundant texture in the mid-palate. With vibrant acidity, typical of the extreme Sonoma Coast, this Chardonnay finishes with length and elegance.

Expert Reviews
  • Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines
    On the one hand sweet and juicy, but on the other a bit bound up by its finishing acids, this firmly balanced, moderately deep effort clearly needs some time to unfold. Its intense themes of ripe apples are accented with highlights of citrus, minerals and green herbs, and, even if a bit truncated at the finish just now, it shows the kind of concentration and substance to encourage two or three years of keeping.
