Rich and brooding with intensely perfumed oak, this is a layered white made from grapes grown throughout the appellation. It delivers medium-bodied weight and grip, with lush apple and gingersnap flavors.

This is focused on the minerally side, with vibrant acidity supporting the dried peach, melon and Fuji apple flavors accented by a twist of citrus rind. Chamomile hints show on the finish.

The entry-level Chardonnay is the 2016 Chardonnay Sonoma Coast and was aged, on lees, in 32% new Burgundy barrels. Light gold colored with supple notes of orchard fruits, white flowers, and spice, it has adequate acidity, a forward texture, and a clean, classy finish. It's a rock-solid introduction to the wines of this estate.
This wine is beautifully complex with aromas and flavors of pineapple, guava, honeydew and lime zest, as well as secondary notes of toasted almond macaroon, cinnamon and sugar cookies. On the palate, it is plush and mouthfilling, flowing to a long, layered finish.
