Robert Young Estate Winery Chardonnay Alexander Valley 2006

Member Review by VegasOenophile:

At this point, the wood influence is beginning to take over as the fruit dies out. Toasty creme bruleé and hazelnut nose with faint pear. Some honey and light marshmallow with a suggestion of browned butter. Creamy on the palate with a lot of wood notes. Poached pear and crusty, brioche with hints of cinnamon, brown sugar, and other baking spice. Finished on a toasty, nutty tone. Retains pretty good acid throughout. Drink now. Like, NOW! 4/9/12

The scions of Robert Young are descendants of a long line of farmers. Throughout five generations of farming the same property, they understand the most efficient, best way to cultivate their land. From wheat to cattle to prunes and now wine grapes, they have sustained a unique balance of dedication to and preservation of the land. Savvy business instincts have encouraged them to take risks in farming, becoming pioneers in the planting of new crops. The first of the Young family to emigrate from upstate New York to California came for the Gold Rush. Peter Young, grandfather of Robert Young, settled on a 206-acre ranch southeast of Geyserville, California in 1858. He was among the pioneers who literally built the community of the Alexander Valley. It was Peter's wife, Rachel, who was a key contributor to the building of the church and establishment of the community Sunday school. Cultivation of grapes began when Robert Young Vineyards was established in 1963. Seeing the potential of the emerging wine industry, Robert Young gradually converted the prune orchard into vineyards. Robert and his first wife, Gertrude, worked diligently to expand the property to encompass all of the land previously owned by Peter Young. The scions of Robert Young - JoAnn, Jim, Susan and Fred - believe their legacy is to keep this land together, while carrying forth their father's commitment to excellence. "The creation of the winery is a result of dad's years of hard work. Dad is the rootstock who is responsible for this new growth coming forth from the scion," said JoAnn. Today the 500-acre Robert Young Estate is among the most honored winegrowing properties in the world. The ranch is planted with 317 acres of benchland and hillside vineyards, containing three main grape varieties: Chardonnay, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Ten other varieties thrive on the ranch in lesser quantities. Vineyard soils contain sandstone, shale, oceanic crust and sediment, providing well-drained and diverse beds for the vines. Read less

Rich and creamy on the palate. Interesting fruit tones with hazelnut, toasty oak and pear with hints of mineral and a dash of bubblegum on the mid palate. Nicely framed fruit with oak and mineral. - Tasted at Marché Bacchus 7/24/10
