Winemaker Notes

Polished, dark fruit with an explosive mid-palate framed by mineral, sage and floral notes with soft tannin that adds structure. Spicy and sumptuous! Long persistent finish rounds out this lush wine. Another mouthful of Kanzler!

Clones 667 and Pommard - aged in a combination of new and older French oak barrels for 11 months and bottled un-fined and un-filtered in August 2010.

Critical Acclaim

This displays excellent richness, focus and density of flavors, with a mix of dark fruit, as well as spicy cola, raspberry, blackberry, black licorice, berry pie/jam and mocha notes. The flavors gain depth and complexity. Drink now through 2018. 200 cases made.

A.P. Vin, , California
A.P. Vin
A.P. VIN was established in 2003 to fulfill the dream of its owner, Andrew P. Vingiello. After taking his first sip of artisinal California pinot noir he set out to learn as much as he could about this unique style of bold, complex wine. In 2003 Andrew worked his first wine harvest and found that his passion for handcrafted wine extended beyond just consuming it. Andrew created the very first vintage of A.P. VIN in 2003 from Garys' Vineyard. While only 150 cases were produced, it was enough to win the acclain of well-known publications. The name A.P. VIN orginiates from Andrew's name (Andrew P. Vingiello) and the logo represents his signature on each bottle produced.

While managing to keep his day job during production of the first few vintages of A.P. VIN, it was in 2005 that Andrew decided to fully dedicate himself and his career to his passion for creating unique wines. Shortly thereafter, Andrew moved his production and winemaking from Lompoc to San Francisco, where he could tend to the wines closer to his home.

Today, A.P. VIN produces approximately 2,000 cases of vineyard-designate pinot noir and is focused on making wines of the highest quality, which Andrew believes starts in the vineyard. From the vineyard and row locations to the farming style of each grower, every element adds nuances and subtleties that result in a superior wine.

Sonoma County

View all wine

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.

Chardonnay

View all wine

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.
