The Wine Advocate - 90 Points
Region: California, USA
Appellation: Sonoma Coast
The 2015 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay is a blend of several lots from three iconic vineyards that showcase how Chardonnay thrives in this cool climate appellation. We sourced grapes from Sangiacomo, Durell and Gap's Crown vineyards to produce this cuvee. Dry weather in both winter and spring resulted in smaller berry sizes with high levels of concentration and detailed aromatics. 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. It is fruit forward with a touch of minerality and crisp acidity. Each lot was fermented separately in French oak barrels utilizing 30% new oak.
