Winemaker's Notes

The region's morning fog slows ripening, allowing for the full development of aroma and flavor compounds so that the grapes ripen with higher acidity. The result is a perfect balance of fresh mouthfeel and soft, creamy texture.

The round, full-bodied texture, sweet vanilla notes and increased depth are a result of aging in a mixture of new and neutral French oak barrels. The lovely fruit-forward flavor with essence of pear, Gravenstein apple, and pineapple contrasts with a very floral nose and slight hints of vanilla on the back palate.

i was turned on to this wine by a friend who swore I would not be sorry, she was right. This wine is perfect for a light meal on a warm summer night ( or any season ). Wonderful taste without the acidity I have come to expect of a wine in this price range.

This was a pretty good Chardonnay. I was expecting it to be too much California, not enough Chardonnay, but found that had some lovely mineral notes, ripe apple and pear, and not over powered by oak, though definitely a good dose of vanilla in the nose & palate. I'd definitely drink it again.

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...
