Winemaker's Notes

Stunning aromatics with remarkable purity and finesse, this wine has excellent depth and richness. Lifted by citrus fruit and layers of ripe stone fruit, along with spicy notes of ginger, white pepper, and anise all underlined by a kiss of tropical fruit shining through on the palate. Subtle French oak, roughly 25% new, offers toasted hazelnut and peanut skin. The sandy soils of this site, lying squarely in the middle of the appellation, volunteer an earthiness and briny sea shell, mineral driven finish to the wine.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2011 Chardonnay Zotovich Family Vineyard is another gorgeous, crystalline wine. Stylistically it is similar to the Sanford & Benedict, but has a bit more palate presence. Grapefruit, lemon, white flowers and crushed rocks all inform the weightless, impeccable finish. This striking Chardonnay should drink well for the better part of the next decade. "
94 Points

"Slightly richer and more full on the nose, with perfectly ripe apple, citrus blossom, melon and spice, the 2011 Chardonnay Zotovich Family Vineyard is also seriously pure and defined, with crisp aromas and flavors, a firm, muscular frame and solid depth and richness. Not as acid-driven as the Solomon Hills Vineyard, it is a rich, beautifully done Chardonnay that will shine for 4-5 years or more. "
