Winemaker Notes

2014 marks the seventh vintage for Covenant Chardonnay Lavan. The wine is made from grapes grown in a small vineyard on Sonoma Mountain. The high-altitude, north facing Scopus Vineyard harnesses a blend of lush California flavor tempered with cool-climate structure hinging on firm acidity and moderate body. Stone fruit, citrus and spice come to mind on the palate, all marked by the vineyard’s classic mineral core. There’s a modest hint of toasty oak framing the ensemble which ends long and fresh.

WE 92
Wine Enthusiast
Voluptuous and expansive in texture, this wine offers a wealth of honey-apple and margarita-lime flavor accented by a streak of stone. The richness is balanced by juicy acidity that lifts the experience all along to the finish.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2014 Chardonnay Covenant Lavan is a rather classic Northern California Chardonnay with notes of white peach, honeysuckle and a touch of orange blossom followed by a medium-bodied, admirably concentrated, nicely textured wine with a touch of toasty oak in the background. This is impressive wine.

The word “covenant” connotes a strong connection between those who share common history, experience and values. It is an age-old concept that serves as a foundation for all civilization, and its significance is evident in the Old Testament stories of Abraham and Moses. Since those early days, the Jews have accorded wine an important role in spiritual practice, and as such, it merits a special respect. Indeed, the fruit of the vine connects us to our land, history and the longstanding bonds that come with friendship, family and tradition.

Shared cultural heritage and a love of fine wine led to the partnership that gave birth to Covenant Cabernet Sauvignon and Red C. Our wines come from grapes grown in two single Napa Valley vineyards, from which we strive to harness quality commensurate with the rich and profound story of the Jewish people.

Defined more by altitude than geographical outline, the Sonoma Mountain appellation occupies elevations between 400 and 1,200 feet on the northern and eastern slopes of the actual Sonoma Mountain and is part of the greater Sonoma Valley appellation. The mountain reaches 2,400 feet, its hills separating the cooling winds of Petaluma Gap from the Sonoma Valley.

On a cooler western flank, Pinot noir, Chardonnay and Syrah enjoy a great deal of success. Vineyards on its warmer, eastern side, interspersed with heavily forested areas, tend to include Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc, Zinfandel, and Syrah. Given its complexity of topography and mesoclimates, Sonoma Mountain excels with a wide range of grape varieties.

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.
