2010 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay

2010 Sonoma Coast

Chardonnay

SONOMA COUNTY


—  SOLD OUT —

TASTING NOTES

Ever since our inaugural 2003 Sonoma Coast chardonnay, this bottling has showcased the citrusy side of the varietal and 2010 is no exception. Careful selection of 33% new French oak provides structural support while keeping the fruit center stage.

Pale gold with a tinge of green around the edges, fresh aromas of lemon, lime, meringue, sweet apple and honeysuckle are followed by a lemon-lime palate that adds enticing notes of apricot, peach, kiwi and pear. A bright, clean and smooth finish accentuates the purity. The wine drinks well already, but we expect it to really shine over the next couple of years.
