The 2021 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay is bright, forward, balanced, and approachable. Enticing aromas of bright pear, peach, spice, and vanilla lead into a broad-textured, and creamy palate. With its cool-climate influences, this Chardonnay has remarkable varietal intensity, balanced acidity, and mineral notes that complement the rich and full flavors of fresh pear, orange peel, and toasted almond.
Aged 9 months in 100% French Oak, 25% new
Presents pear drop, Fuji apple, ripe Bartlett pear, and lemon blossom details that are elegant and restrained, but they weave in and out on a light, a fresh frame that’s quite impressive. Gains a savory element, thanks to a touch of a toasted sesame seed. Drink now. – 92 pts WS
