Review

Lean mouthfeel, bright acidity, flintiness, tight grip, and striking power from a strong backbone. Wonderful focus and balance. The fruit comes on the finish: Granny Smith apple, pear, mandarin orange. The chilly winds and thick fog of the high-elevation Sonoma Coast region bring great character to the fruit of the wine. Who says California doesn’t have great terroir? A village Chardonnay for the aficionado enthusiast.
