Winemaker’s Notes

This 2018 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay captivates with its radiant golden hue, signaling a wine of depth and elegance. The nose is immediately enveloping, offering a rich tapestry of aromas: ripe Anjou pear and golden apple are at the forefront, accented by subtle hints of citrus blossom and a refined minerality. The light oak influence is masterfully integrated, weaving in delicate notes of vanilla bean and a whisper of brioche that enhance, rather than dominate, the wine’s aromatic profile.

Upon tasting, the wine reveals a harmonious blend of texture and flavor. The palate is greeted with a lush entry, showcasing the ripeness of the fruit with flavors of nectarine and lemon curd. The temperate summer’s influence is evident in the wine’s balanced acidity, which adds a crisp freshness to the rich fruit flavors. The oak aging imparts a creamy, almost silky mouthfeel, with just enough weight to add complexity without overshadowing the wine’s natural vibrancy.

The finish is both long and memorable, with a lingering essence of stone fruit and a subtle minerality that echoes the unique terroir of the Sonoma Coast. This Chardonnay’s elegant structure and refined flavors are a testament to the stellar 2018 vintage, making it a perfect accompaniment to fine cuisine or a distinguished addition to any wine collection.
