Winemaker Notes

The wine is day bright and pale gold in color. On the nose are fresh green herbs

of chervil and lemongrass with notes of golden delicious apple, Meyer lemon and

crème brulee. In the mouth, flavors of golden delicious apple and butterscotch give way to higher toned fruits like apricot, peach, and fig. There is richness from both lees aging and a hint of toasty oak, but these are held in check with bracing acidity which makes the wine all at once mouth filling and thirst quenching. The finish is long with hints of roasted lemon and orange flower water.

This Chardonnay pairs well with soft rind cheeses, nuts, and dried fruits. Shrimp

Scampi with a touch of lemon and parsley in the sauce does well as will roasted

pheasant or squab topped with a fig reduction jus. Start with an avocado salad with green goddess dressing and you will have a meal to remember.

Bottled under screwcap, the 2019 Chardonnay Los Primeros is a solid, juicy Chardonnay that brings plenty of melon and lemon curd-like aromatics to go with medium-bodied richness and depth on the palate. It’s soft, supple, and forward, yet also has a bright spine of acidity that keeps it clean and focused on the palate while also stretching out the finish This is a classy, well-made Chardonnay with loads to love.

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.

Sonoma County wines are produced with carefully selected grape varieties 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 red wines like 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.
