Leading off the two Chardonnay, the 2017 Chardonnay Sonoma Coast reveals a medium gold color as well as rich, Burgundian notes of sautéed orchard fruits, flower oil, toasted almonds, and white flowers. Nicely balanced, with building richness and good acidity, it's a textbook, high-quality Sonoma Coast Chardonnay to enjoy over the coming 4-5 years.

Tight, tart layers of stone fruit and apple highlight an increasingly soft, appealing midpalate. It shows integrated oak, tannin and weight for a highly appealing result.
The wine has inviting aromas of apricot, lemon zest, brown sugar cookie, dried lavender and heavily roasted hazelnut. The palate is mouthwatering, vibrant and fresh with sleek acidity supporting flavorful pulses of spicy pear, green apple, marzipan and orange-clove.
