IWC 91 - This wine is 100% from our Sta. Rita Hills estate. Because the west side of our estate receives the brunt of brutal ocean-winds, we feel our chardonnay always captures the vibrancy, minerality, and concentrated flavors that are hallmarks of our appellation.


IWC 91 Pts - According to International Wine Cellar - Pale gold. Powerful scents of tangerine, pear skin and iodine, with a racy streak of smoky minerals adding vivacity. Pure, focused and linear on the palate, offering fresh lemon, orange and orchard fruit flavors and a musky floral quality. Very deep but refreshingly brisk, with a penetrating note of dusty minerals on the long, focused finish.

Tasting Notes - With a pale gold hue, this wine boasts bright aromatics of kaffir lime, honeydew melon, fresh arugula and dried stone fruits. Rich and concentrated on the palate, alluring impressions of lemon cream, agave nectar, tangerine leaf and baked green apple are immediately noticeable while notes of rock salt, seashell and gingerbread float in the background. The mouthfeel is polished and satiating with a full bodied, lengthy finish. 14.5% ABV.
