Winemaker's Notes

One of our most profound sites (block 48), is situated at 1,800 feet. The rocky, shallow site is exposed and straddles a high ridgeline. The wine from Upper Barn is known for its complexity and hedonistic texture and reveals itself in luscious layers with each subsequent swirl and sniff in the glass. Only 385 cases made.

Critical Acclaim

"The star is the 2007 Chardonnay Upper Barn, which was made famous when Helen Turley used to make this wine for her Marcassin label. From this great grand cru site, this powerful Chardonnay reveals notes of popcorn, citrus, nectarine, and lemon blossom. Made from the old Heritage Wente clone (as are many of California’s top Chardonnays), it possesses plenty of minerality, a big, full-bodied mouthfeel, good acidity, and a long finish. Drink this profound Chardonnay over the next 5-6 years. Stonestreet is becoming an excellent source for small lots of Chardonnay, although the basic Alexander Valley cuvee is very plentiful (6,500 cases). The single vineyard offerings (between 120 and 350 cases produced of each) are impressive efforts that are more similar than dissimilar since they all come from single vineyard lots, are aged in 50% new French oak (except for the Gravel Bench), and spend 11 months on their lees before bottling. "

"This vineyard has a long, distinguished history, even before it passed into Jackson Family's hands. It's a great mountain property, yielding focused, concentrated flavors of tropical fruits that are well oaked. There's also a firm minerality. One of the few Chards that can age. "
93 Points

"Light bronze hue. Heady aromas of honey, toasted grain and lemon. Rich, lavish entry of generous grapefruit framed by well-blended oak. Tart, tangy finish imbued with impressive, lemon-lime-tinged acidity and lovely apple nuances."

Learn About Sonoma County

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...
