    Winemaker's Tasting Notes
    Hailing from the cool Sonoma Coast appellation, the 2022 vintage showcases pale straw in the glass and opens with aromas of green apple, lemon zest, and honeysuckle. Alluring flavors of Honeycrisp apple and Asian pear are balanced by a flinty minerality and creamy texture on the mid-palate. A vibrant acidity accented by flaky sea salt provides tension and length that drives a lingering finish with notes of tangerine and guava.

    93 Points - Tasting Panel
    A sassy, electric Chardonnay with aromas of baked pear and gem-like minerality. A striking entry of ripe pineapple, sea-salted and juicy. Hints of toffee soften its vibrant acidity. The overall lean body makes for excellent food-pairing abilities.

    92 Points - Jeb Dunnuck
    The 2022 Chardonnay Sonoma Coast takes on a touch deeper straw appearance but is still pale yellow and offers notes of wet stone, ripe peach, and melon rind. It’s full-bodied, with a rounded mouthfeel and good lifted freshness, more ripe peach, melon, and flowers and a good finish. This attractive white also reveals a touch of warming spice.

    92 Points - James Suckling
    A full and layered white with sliced cooked apple and lemon aromas and flavors. Plenty of cooked apple, lemon skin and mineral undertones. Drink or hold.

    92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
    The 2022 Chardonnay, made with 98% estate fruit, is open and perfumed with scents of fresh quince, yellow apples, cashews, acacia and bread dough. The light-bodied palate features generous, crunchy fruit, a touch of roundness to its texture, tangy freshness and a long, ethereal finish. This is very easy to drink!
