We have added the following products to your shopping cart from a previous visit:
Light to medium bodied wines that are high in acid and light to medium fruit. Typically no oak.
Light to medium bodied wines with lots of juicy fruit, typically medium acid and medium oak.
Full bodied wines that have typically undergone malo-lactic fermentation and/or spent time in oak.
Intense and expressive, with a nose of brioche, mineral, peach
blossom, candied orange, lemon oil, yellow peach and dry apricot.
Notes of vanilla, toasted hazelnut, meringue and subtle white truffle
interact to complete a multi-layered and very intense bouquet.
In the mouth, the texture is ample and creamy, displaying a lot of
"gras" and balanced with a lingering mineral finish. The 2010 Cuvée
Indigène will age and express its potential for three decades,
much like its Burgundian cousins from Corton-Charlemagne.
"In 2010, the Chardonnay Cuvee Indigene stands out for its exotic bouquet. Passion fruit, lychee, nectarine, wild flowers and peaches are some of many notes that come alive in the glass. Surprisingly weightless for a Peter Michael Chardonnay, the Cuvee Indigene impresses for its balance and superb sense of proportion. In 2010 the Cuvee Indigene is a model of purity and elegance. Even better, it should enjoy a broad window of drinkability. "
Vinous / Antonio Galloni
"Light gold. Pungent, assertively perfumed aromas of poached pear, dried flowers, vanilla bean and iodine, with a smoky topnote. Lush, palate-staining orchard fruit flavors show outstanding depth and intensity, picking up spiciness with aeration. Refuses to let up on the finish, leaving vibrant mineral and floral notes behind."
International Wine Cellar
"The 2010 Chardonnay Cuvee Indigene is a big, rich wine loaded with fruit. In this vintage the Cuvee Indigene comes across as powerful and quite tropical. The 2010 is an especially intense Cuvee Indigene that lacks some of the refinement of previous years.Range: 90-93"

Twice as large as Napa in size, Sonoma County only makes about a half the amount of wine as her northeasterly neighbor. But Sonoma, with her size, is able to vouch for more diversity within her borders, including sub-AVAs that are climatically varied. The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...Read More About Sonoma County
