This wine displays the wonderful combination of glycerin and vibrancy naturally achieved in these coastal sandstone soils and benevolent, foggy climate. It’s a deeply concentrated, beautifully textured wine from the lowest-yielding chardonnay vintage in 20+ years, and is a perfect representation of our refined house style: rich yet vibrant, power offset by intensity, precision, length and detail. The wine shows toast, mineral and slate aromas with notes of apple and pear opening to honeyed citrus, thyme blossom, with fennel and lemongrass freshness. The deeply concentrated palate of orchard fruits and apricot preserve reveals a lovely flinty mid-palate character with spearmint and botanicals. Fine persistent length with lots of nuance and detail.
