Tasting notes

With its spine of sappy brightness and crystalline salinity, this wine displays all the dense, bright, and savory appeal of the Sonoma Coast. At once textural and filigreed, this is a laser focused expression showing citrus, coastal bay and a textural depth to carry the mid-palate to a refreshing finish.

Production

Vintage Notes

The 2018 VINTAGE started with a cool spring, long bloom, and near-perfect fruit set. Summer temperatures remained moderate with fewer heat spikes than the past two vintages, pushing harvest dates to a historically typical time frame and allowing for an elongated grow season.

Viticulture

THE VINEYARDS represented in this bottling are a stellar depiction of quality farming, mature vines and the distinct terroir of cool climates that are graced with the sunshine Chardonnay craves. Roughly 75% of the grapes used in this bottling are estate grown and farmed.
