Notes from the Winemaker:
Highlighting the beauty of the appellation each year, our Sonoma Coast Chardonnay is an artistic blend sourced from distinct areas within the vast Sonoma Coast AVA. Each of the vineyard locations contribute to the balance and beauty of this wine –from the wind swept regions in the southern end to the cool and foggier regions in the north. The 2016 vintage was steady, producing balanced, beautiful fruit. Each vineyard showcased its characteristics in the final blend. The result is a wine with lush, bright fruit and great texture.

Tasting Notes

Enticing notes of citrus, Key lime and lemon cheesecake come to for a lush yet vibrant bouquet. The layered palate marries flavors of marzipan, lemon cream, citrus and brioche. Overall, the wine has great energy, acidity and balance.


Ratings & Reviews

91 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"This appellation wine is made from multiple single-vineyard sites. It's light and floral, with a fresh, focused embrace of grapefruit, Meyer lemon and Gravenstein apple. Hints of fennel and orange mark the finish. Virginie Boone" - (8/1/2018)

90 Points - Vinous Media:
"Anaba's 2015 Chardonnay (Sonoma Coast) is bright and focused in style, with plenty of citrus and floral notes. Picking on the early side and partial malolactic fermentation keeps the wine chiseled in feel. This is an especially nervy style, but it works well." - Antonio Galloni (Apr 2018)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"Scented of grapefruit, white peaches and lemon curd with touches of chalk dust, coriander seed and baking bread, the medium-bodied 2015 Chardonnay delivers plenty of uncomplicated stone fruit and citrus flavors with well-balanced freshness and good length. 728 cases produced." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown (27th Apr 2018)

James Suckling:
"This has impressive pears and apples with a chalky texture and offers a gently toasty thread on the palate, in a fleshy, drink-now mode." - (18 Oct, 2018)

Jeb Dunnuck:

"The base 2015 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay is a juicy, balanced effort that gains depth with time in the glass. Buttered pineapple, lemon, and white flower notes all emerge from this medium-bodied, juicy effort. It's nicely balanced, has a layered, rich texture, and a good finish. Drink it over the coming 2-4 years." - Jeb Dunnuck (06/05/2018)

Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Fresh Asian pear and nectarine flavors are at the core of this medium-weight, zesty expression, which ends with a pithy citrus skin aftertaste. Drink now. 728 cases made." - JL (Region Sonoma)
