92 Pts. - Our 2014 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay
is a blend of several unique lots from three distinct vineyards spanning this cool-climate appellation. We sourced Old Wente clone and clone 95 Chardonnay
grapes from Sangiacomo and Durell Vineyards again, and, new in 2014, blended in clones 76 and 95 from Gap's Crown Vineyard. The resulting blend is a serious wine with precision and detail, while still being open and friendly. A lovely nose of stone fruit, apples and white flowers leads to rich flavors and an intriguing mix of depth and vibrancy on the palate. Refreshing and layered, this wine is a fabulous blend of old-world style and new-world eloquence. Each lot was fermented in French oak barrels utilizing 30% new oak.
