Winemaker Notes

We seek out premium grapes from the Sonoma Coast that will produce wines reminiscent of the most respected wines of Burgundy. Our Chardonnay comes from five premium Sonoma growers: Bacigalupi, Fallen Leaf, Sangiacomo, Bonneau, and Haddad. The famed Sonoma Coast soils translate their mineral richness to the wines, imparting attractive flavor and character. Anabatic winds blow rather persistently throughout the summer and sunshine is abundant. Our 2007 grape harvest began early, slowed mid-way due to cool weather, and finished in late October.

Intense aromas of exotic flowers, limestone minerals and toasted brioche emanate from this wine. The full-bodied palate is dense with notes of citrus peel and lemon pound cake. This Chardonnay also boasts an intriguing mineral quality, which is what we like about wines produced from the Sonoma Coast. A crisp, clean character perfectly balances the richness of the fruit, proving a seamless wine of depth. Enjoy this wine from now through 2020.

Wine Spectator
An elegant style, with ripe, creamy floral honeysuckle, pear and honeydew melon flavors that glide across the palate, followed by a long, full finish. Drink now through 2011.

Connoisseurs' Guide
Get ready to welcome the new kid on the block. Anaba is a new, limited-production winery in Sonoma. It is making both Rhône and Burgundian varieties, and if this Chardonnay is an indication, Anaba will specialize in balanced, rich yet mannerly wines. This one combines a fresh apple, almost Gala apple perfume with the more complex notes of roasted grains and creme brulee, and it is both slightly oily and bright and energetic on the palate. Its finish is a touch simple and ragged at this point, but time is clearly on its side, and we would not be afraid to lay this one down for at least two or three years.

Anaba, Sonoma County, California
2007 Chardonnay
On tranquil summer days, as golden sun kisses the valleys and hills of vineyards in Sonoma, unique air currents bring cooling breezes inland from the Pacific Ocean and San Pablo Bay. Wafting softly, with some gusts and gales, they glide through the vineyard rows. As they encounter steeper slopes and drift upward, they become anabatic winds. Soaring glider pilots rely on them for flight. We treasure them for the coolness they impart on their journey — a gift of nature that makes the vineyard more temperate and slows the ripening process, producing robust flavors and distinctive varietal characters in our grapes.

The exclusive Anaba wines are handcrafted from the best Rhône and Burgundian grape varieties grown at the Carneros Estate vineyard and in selected outstanding vineyard properties throughout Sonoma County. These Rhône-style wines are artistic blends, inspired by the rugged earthiness of France's Rhône Valley and duplicated in the rocky Sonoma soils. Anaba's Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs reflect the elegance and grace of the gently sloping vineyards found in Burgundy, crafted from similar sites in the Sonoma Coast and Carneros appellations.

Anaba... elegant, classic wines borne by the wind.

Sonoma County

Home to a diverse array of smaller AVAs with varied microclimates and soil types, Sonoma County has something for nearly every wine lover. Physically twice as large as Napa, the region only produces about half the amount of wine, but what it lacks in quantity it makes up for in both 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 and Sonoma Valleys, Carneros, and Fort Ross-Seaview. 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’s grown and how it’s made. In Burgundy, Chardonnay produces some of the finest white wines in the world, typically tending towards minimal intervention in the winery and at its best resulting in remarkable longevity. This grape is popular throughout the world, but perhaps its second most important home is in California, where both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines enjoy great popularity. Oregon, Australia, South America, South Africa, and New Zealand are also significant producers of Chardonnay.

In the Glass

When planted on cool sites, Chardonnay’s flavors tend towards grapefruit, green apple, minerals, and white stone fruit, while warmer locations coax out richer, more tropical flavors of fig, melon, and pineapple. Oak can add notes of vanilla, coconut, and spice (as well as texture), while malolactic fermentation can impart soft, buttery acidity.

Perfect Pairings

Chardonnay is as versatile at the table as it is in the vineyard. The crisp, clean, Chablis-like styles go well with simple seafood, light chicken dishes, and salads. Richer Chardonnays marry well with cream or oil-based sauces.

Sommelier Secret

Since the 1990s, big, oaky, buttery Chardonnays from California have enjoyed explosive popularity. More recently, the pendulum has begun to swing in the opposite direction, towards a clean, crisp style that rarely utilizes new oak. These Old-World style wines have been dubbed the “New California Chardonnays,” and anyone who claims they do not like Chardonnay should give them a try.
