Localization: Sonoma Coast, Sonoma County, California, USA
Tasting Notes: A bright and refreshing Chardonnay bursting with aromas of crisp green apple, white peach, and a touch of citrus blossom. With notes of fresh pear, kumquat, and lime zest, the palate is charged by an electric minerality and brisk acidity that blends seamlessly through to a vibrant finish.
93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: The Chardonnay has a detailed, pretty perfume of white peaches and quince, with touches of lemongrass, green herbs and white flowers. The medium-bodied palate is satiny and fragrant, with a supporting streak of fresh acidity, and there's a touch of phenolic texture that draws out the long finish.
