From the Sta. Rita Hills and brought up in 15% new French oak, the 2017 Chardonnay Golden Slope boasts a medium gold color as well as a beautiful bouquet of orchard fruits, salted caramel, white flowers, and plenty of marine and seaside, iodine-like notions. Beautifully textured, medium to full-bodied, with integrated acidity, it's a classic effort from this team that will be better this time next year and keep for a decade.

The 2017 Chardonnay Four is softly scented of hazelnut and meringue with white peach, baked red apple, honeysuckle, stone and honey toast. Medium-bodied and lightly creamy, it gives savory fruits in the mouth with tangy acidity, finishing long on a honeyed note.
