Overview of the Wine
The McDonough family stretches from San Francisco all the way to Chicago. The genetic tree includes admen, engineers, visionaries, artists, over-the-top embellishers and the odd scoundrel or two. An eclectic meritage, if you will. They also happen to share a ridiculous passion for wine. Run by partners James McDonough in Sonoma and his father James McDonough Sr. back in the Windy City, they hope to make Wren Hop a truly exceptional winery. Look- some families play Monopoly, this family would rather debate rootstock and french barrel selection.

    Winemaker's Tasting Notes
    Yes, this Chard has a bit of dangling loafer complex. Notes of grilled pineapple, green apple, and citrus along with toasted oak, coconut and brioche drive this wine to the top of your favorite list. Partial malolactic fermentation keeps your palate dancing until the last ester. We suggest you observe the speed limit and savor this wine.

    90 Points - Jeb Dunnuck
    Lots of honeyed peach, brioche, and toasty notes emerge from the 2018 Chardonnay Slow Drive, a richer, medium-bodied, nicely textured Chardonnay to enjoy over the coming couple of years.
