Lightly spicy, chalky, with a touch of caramel and a floral note of balsam and perfume. On entry this is rich but with good, tense focus. There’s nicely integrated wood running through the core of this very ripe fruit, but it’s playing second fiddle. The finish is really succulent with deep, ripe fruit character that melds together orchard and citrus fruits on a long, slightly caramelly finish. A rich pure style perfect for a roast veal roast. 90pts.

Rich with viscous texture. Stone fruit flavors of peach and apricot, tropical fruit, Fuji apples and white flowers. Minerality and crisp acidity are accented by additional layers of tangerine, Bosc pear, peach and hazelnut, resulting in a lithe, layered and complex wine that harmoniously combines the finest attributes of great Sonoma Coast winegrowing.

This is an austere Chardonnay whose minerality and acidity star. That's not to say it's not fruity. It has pineapple and green apple flavors, with oak and lees adding richer complexities.

WE 92pts. - According to the Wine Enthusiast: This is an austere Chardonnay whose minerality and acidity star. That's not to say it's not fruity. It has pineapple and green apple flavors, with oak and lees adding richer complexities. Still, it's a firm, Chablis-style wine, and a very good one that defines the elegant sleekness of the Sonoma Coast.
