Rich and well-sculpted, with lemon-lime notes to the fres-cut apple, quince and pear flavors. Minerally midpalate, offering refreshing saline and flinty hints on the structured finish. Drink now through 2023.

Review

David Ramey's 2016 Chardonnay (Sonoma Coast) is a pretty, open-knit wine that will drink well upon release. Orchard fruit, lemon peel and white flowers all add brightness to this attractive, mid-weight Chardonnay. The 2016 is a wine of total precision and class. In this vintage, the Sonoma Coast Chardonnay is sourced exclusively from Charles Ranch. I loved it for its interplay of fruit and structure.
