Winemaker Notes

The 2016 Sonoma County Chardonnay opens up with lemon curd, chamomile, and yellow apple with flavors of fenugreek, fennel bulb, talc, and yuzo.

Pair this wine with curried mussels, Spanish tortilla and Cauliflower gratin.

WW 92
Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
California Chardonnays of this style are difficult to find. Fresh, lively, and quite Chablis-like, the 2016 Lioco delivers authenticity, style, and balance. This wine exhibits lemon peel, core fruit, and dried herbs in its aromas and flavors. Its crisp finish pairs it perfectly a slightly savory bowl of steamed clams. (Tasted: October 5, 2017, San Francisco, CA)

Lioco was conceived in the alley behind Spago Beverly Hills by wine director Kevin O’Connor and wine salesman Matt Licklider. The year was 2001 -- and the two colleagues, critical of the heavy-handed wines of the day, wondered if it were possible to make some local wines that favored nuance over sheer power. In 2005, relying on nothing more than their palates and their rolodexes, the two embarked on a winemaking odyssey. Europe was the inspiration, as were the more restrained California wines of the 1980’s.

Today, the winery is owned and operated by the Licklider family. Husband/wife duo Matt and Sara Licklider and their small team produce the wines at a state-of-the-art winemaking cooperative in Santa Rosa. All of the fruit is purchased from family-owned vineyards spanning 200-miles and three counties (Santa Cruz, Sonoma, and Mendocino).

The focus is on Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Carignan from sites with older vines, interesting soil, and heritage clones. Sometimes the hunt for Pinot Noir uncovers other treasures like a coastal Syrah vineyard or a rare, mid-century planting of Valdiguie. Room is made for such discoveries.
