Winemaker Notes

The 2018 vintage is comprised of vineyards that span two appellations: Sonoma Mountain and Russian River Valley. The Sonoma Mountain vineyard is protected from the heat of the day, lending cool-climate qualities to the blend: minerality, acidity, and structure alongside citrus fruit and flowers. The Russian River Valley vineyard is everything that you expect, contributing exotic fruit, richness, and complexity.

COMMENTARY: The ARENA 2018 Chardonnay is vibrant and lively. TASTING NOTES: This wine shows warm apple and oaky accents in its aromas and flavors. Pair with a well-spiced rotisserie chicken. (Tasted: March 27, 2020, San Francisco, CA)

Home to a diverse array of smaller AVAs with varied microclimates and soil types, Sonoma County has something for every wine lover. Physically twice as large as Napa Valley, the region only produces about half the amount of wine but boasts both tremendous quality and variety. With its laid-back atmosphere and down-to-earth attitude, the wineries of Sonoma are appreciated by wine tourists for their friendliness and approachability. The entire county intends to become a 100% sustainable winegrowing region by 2019.

Grape varieties are carefully selected to reflect the best attributes of their sites—Dry Creek Valley’s consistent sunshine is ideal for Zinfandel, while the warm Alexander Valley is responsible for rich, voluptuous Cabernet Sauvignon. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are important throughout the county, most notably in the cooler AVAs of Russian River, Sonoma Coast and Carneros. Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and Syrah have also found a firm footing here.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
