Wine Grapes

Primary Grape: Chardonnay | All Grapes: Chardonnay

From the Producer

We barrel fermented 60% of this wine and aged that portion in barrel for 6 months, stirring the lees every month. This method offers the wine a touch of spice and vanilla, while cold fermenting the remainder to maximize a fresh fruit-forward character. This Chardonnay displays aromas of lemon curd and apple with hints of toasty oak and baking spices. The finish is long and lingering with silky notes of fresh pear and pineapple. Enjoy this wine with grilled asparagus, seared tuna with a mango-avocado salsa or an apple and Brie grilled cheese.

Critical Acclaim

WE86 Wine Enthusiast 8/1/2020

"From several appellations across the state, including its home of Sonoma County, this white is big in oak and tropical flavor, made in a robust style. Vanilla, nutmeg and clove complement a heart of lemon meringue and pineapple, finishing rich and ripe." (86 pts.)

SP86 Wine Spectator Apr 30, 2020

"Floral hints accent the crisp green apple and peach flavors. The spicy finish is light and refreshing, with savory details. Drink now. 62,900 cases made." (86 pts.)

Sonoma County

Sonoma County, just north of San Francisco is one of California's most famous wine districts. While sometimes overshadowed by the reputation of its rival and neighbor, Napa Valley, Sonoma County has a longer history of viticulture and is twice the size of the former.

Thanks in part to a strong diversity of climates within Sonoma County, the district is home to outstanding examples from a whole host of grapes. Sonoma County Pinot Noirs are considered some of the finest in the state, and the Dry Creek Valley Zinfandels are remarkable. Chardonnays come in a variety of styles thanks to the varying temperatures in Sonoma County, and Cabernets and Merlots also thrive here.

Some of the more celebrated viticultural areas in Sonoma County include Sonoma Mountain, Sonoma Coast, Chalk Hill, Dry Creek Valley, Alexander Valley, and Carneros (parts of which fall within Napa Valley).

California

When it comes to US wine production, California is King. California wines account for almost 90% of all wines produced in the United States each year, and is home to the most celebrated vineyards and producers in the country. California is probably best known for its world-famous Cabernets and Chardonnays, many of which hail from its two most-acclaimed AVAs, Napa Valley and Sonoma County. Other prominent grapes used in California wines include Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, and Zinfandel (which California made popular).

United States

The United States now ranks fourth in the world in wine production behind, France, Italy, and Spain. While about 90% of that wine is produced in California, other states like Oregon, New York, and Washington are establishing themselves as prime spots for wine production, as well. Just about any variety of wine can be found in production somewhere in the United States.
