    Winemaker Notes

    Brilliant straw yellow in hue, the nose is marked by ripe peach, mango, golden apple, lime, honeysuckle and bay leaf. Gorgeous entry unfolds into flavors of stone fruits and plush tropical fruits. The mouthfeel is smooth, the acidity mature and a touch of sweet oak contributes to its depth and complexity.

    This Carneros Chardonnay impresses with its great balance and complexity. It has a nice butterscotch component without the all-too-common flabbiness, making food pairing easy. Tuna tartare, clam chowder and steamed Sea Bass are all excellent complements for this Chardonnay.

    Reata, California
    Reata Reata Tasting Room Winery Image

    Reata at Jamieson Ranch Vineyards is the southernmost winery in the Napa Valley, one of the world’s foremost winemaking regions. The estate’s more than 300 acres of gently rolling hills and terraced vineyards benefit from the cooling fog and breezes from the nearby San Pablo Bay, climatic conditions that favor the production of exceptional Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

    Reata comes from the Spanish word for lariat and lasso. The lasso honors the winery’s ranching tradition and their winemaking philosophy. Just as lassos are threads woven together, Reata wines are sourced from exceptional vineyards in California’s most celebrated growing regions and woven together by their award-winning winemaker. Reata focuses on Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grown in the cooler-climate, coastal regions of California, which are ideally suited to these Burgundian varietals.

    Expressive of the true character of their varietal, Reata wines are approachable, balanced and highly enjoyable.

    Known for elegant wines that combine power and finesse, Carneros is set in the rolling hills that straddle the southernmost parts of both Sonoma and Napa counties. The cooling winds from the abutting San Pablo Bay, combined with lots of midday California sunshine, create an ideal environment for producing wines with a perfect balance of crisp acidity and well-ripened fruit.

    This cooler pocket of California lends itself to growing Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah. Carneros is an important source of sparkling wines made in the style of Champagne as well.

    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.
