    Winemaker Notes

    Vibrant flavors of passion fruit, honey and Key lime lead the way to melon, citrus and honeysuckle notes in the mouth. This delightfully crisp Chardonnay finishes with tropical fruit, pears and hints of vanilla bean.

    Pairs wonderfully with salmon cakes topped with lemon aioli, or chicken roasted with fresh garden herbs and creamy, mushroom risotto on the side.

    Pezzi King, Russian River, Sonoma County, California
    Image of winery
    Ken and Diane Wilson first made a name for themselves specializing in Dry Creek Valley Zinfandels. Thus the purchase of Pezzi King Vineyards was an ideal match for the Wilson family's philosophy of producing small quantities of high-end, handcrafted wines. The Wilsons, who are the owners of two other highly regarded Zinfandel-producing small wineries, Wilson Winery and Mazzocco Sonoma, are thrilled to have this 137 acre farm set in the hills above Dry Creek Valley. At the heart of this beautiful property are the vineyards, 65 acres of world-class Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon - which allow the Wilsons to continue their commitment to producing only the finest wines possible while investing in the personal relationships with their clientele through priviate wine club participation.

    Ken Wilson commented that, ""I've always admired Jim Row and the Pezzi King wines, especially the estate Zinfandels. Pezzi King changed the way we looked at Zinfandel and turned the local winemaking world upside down with its 1995 Zin. Its rich, jammy, and fruit-forward style became the new standard of excellence in Zins.""

    No where in America are conditions better suited to producing world-class Zinfandels than Pezzi King's home: Dry Creek Valley."

    Russian River

    View all wine

    A standout region for its decidedly Californian take on Burgundian varieties, the Russian River Valley is named for the eponymous river that flows through it. While there are warm pockets of the AVA, it is mostly a cool-climate growing region thanks to breezes and fog from the nearby Pacific Ocean.

    Chardonnay and Pinot Noir reign supreme in Russian River, with the best examples demonstrating a unique combination of richness and restraint. The cool weather makes Russian River an ideal AVA for sparkling wine production, utilizing the aforementioned varieties. Zinfandel also performs exceptionally well here. Within the Russian River Valley lie the smaller appellations of Chalk Hill and Green Valley. The former, farther from the ocean, is relatively warm, with a focus on red and white Bordeaux varieties. The latter is the coolest, foggiest parcel of the Russian River Valley and is responsible for outstanding Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

    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.
