Winemaker Notes

Our flagship and renowned Chardonnay which is the quintessential expression of our Sleepy Hollow Estate located in the Santa Lucia Highlands of California. Hand picked grapes, barrel aged 12 months in French Oak, 30% new oak. Excellent food wine as it is full bodied, smooth balance, with delicious notes of tangerine, grapefruit, white peach, and toasted almond.

Critical Acclaim

WE 93
Wine Enthusiast
As always with this vineyard, the wine is superripe, almost overripe, with extracted pineapple, pear, nectarine and peach flavors that are impossibly ripe. New oak adds even richer vanilla, caramel and buttered toast notes. Great acidity and firm minerality fortunately balance all this flamboyance, but it's still a pretty powerful Chardonnay. Drink with rich lobster, scallop and tuna dishes.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Presents its tropical fruit flavors on a laser beam, with spicy citrus, green pineapple, guava and green apple scents. Intense, concentrated and very cleansing. Drink now through 2017. 7,728 cases made.

The largest and perhaps most varied of California’s wine-growing regions, the Central Coast produces a good majority of the state's wine. This vast district stretches from San Francisco all the way to Santa Barbara along the coast, and reaches inland nearly all the way to the Central Valley.

Encompassing an extremely diverse array of climates, soil types and wine styles, it contains many smaller sub-AVAs, including San Francisco Bay, Monterey, the Santa Cruz Mountains, Paso Robles, Edna Valley, Santa Ynez Valley and Santa Maria Valley.

While the region could probably support almost any major grape varietiy, it is famous for a few. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel are among the major ones. The Central Coast is home to many of the state's small, artisanal wineries crafting unique, high-quality wines, as well as larger producers also making exceptional wines.

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.
