Tasting Notes

As with children and pets, society frowns upon choosing favorites. However, wine geeks that we are, we admit to reaching for this Chardonnay most often of all. Naturally powerful and singing with vibrancy, it satiates on both a sensory and an intellectual level every time, keeping us coming back for more every year.

Green Acres is a killer Sonoma Coast site, and the particular block we source is planted to the naturally acid-retaining Hyde clone (an offshoot of the much-lauded Old Wente,) balancing the plushness and power of well-ripened fruit with a mouthwatering vitality.

Raised in a combination of French oak puncheon and barrel, we carefully pair the wood to the wine to support rather than obscure. What finally makes it to bottle presents both richness and a vibrant core. Flavors incline toward baked green apple, quince, citrus oil, lemon curd, salinity and a natural touch of toasty nuttiness. A perfect package of pleasure and pedigree!

An obvious companion at table, we also love it on its own. And what an outstanding cellar candidate — we are enjoying the amazing 2012 and 2013 right now, a full eight to nine years later!
