Chardonnay is a chameleon – readily taking on the character of its growing site and winemaking
technique. Cloaked in the cool coastal fog that rolls over the vineyards each day, Chardonnay grown in the
Russian River Valley retains a lively acidity and crispness. We love the vibrant, perfumed aromatics and
fresh, bright fruit flavors.
The 2009 vintage was particularly smooth from start to finish. Budbreak arrived on schedule in the spring,
and we saw lower-than-average rainfall. Healthy flowering led to a very even set, with few heat spikes
during the season. Timely veraison and cooler weather later in the season allowed the grapes to ripen
slowly and spend additional time on the vine. Although the end of season was somewhat challenging due
to earlier than usual rainfall, by all accounts the wines show varietal integrity, depth and concentration.
"Dry and racy and clean. Shows real class, with plenty of zesty lemon and lime acidity, brightening the citrus, lemongrass, white peach and mineral flavors."
"Bright yellow. Subdued but pure, fruit-driven aromas of fresh pineapple, nectarine, peach and candied ginger. Then smooth and velvety in the mouth, with a firm mineral spine supporting the vibrant pit fruit and spice flavors. Fleshy but precise chardonnay, finishing focused, dry and quite youthful.
