Notes from the Winemaker:

Shimmering with a youthful brilliance in the glass, the 2017 Lucia Soberanes Vineyard Chardonnay offers a lifted aromatics of lemon oil, orange blossom, and green apple on the finish. A product of the dense, rocky soils of this site, the wine is flinty and mineral-driven to its core. Its focused acidity bursts with energy as it dances on the palate. Each windswept grape cluster delivers immense concentration that is carefully extracted through gentle pressing. Minimal stirring of the lees over the course of a 15-month slumber in the cellar provides this chardonnay with a focused intensity. In the glass, this wine comes to life with a flawless balance of fruit, density and length, all of which combine to produce a delicate tension that will reward for many years to come.

Ratings & Reviews

94 Points - Jeb Dunnuck (2016 Vintage):
"More intense and flamboyant, the 2016 Chardonnay Soberanes Vineyard boasts awesome notes of white citrus and pineapple, with subtle brioche and marzipan developing with time in the glass. It’s textured, medium to full-bodied, and concentrated, yet incredibly elegant as well." - Jeb Dunnuck (06/05/2018)

94 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous (2016 Vintage):
"Bright straw-yellow. A highly complex, mineral-accented bouquet evokes fresh citrus and orchard fruits, toasted brioche and white flowers, and a hint of oyster shell emerges with air. Shows excellent depth and delineation, offering vibrant tangerine, pear, sweet butter and anise flavors that firm up slowly on the back half. Powerful yet graceful in character, displaying superb detail and thrust on a strikingly long finish that features lingering floral and mineral notes." - Josh Raynolds (Oct 2018)

90 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine (2016 Vintage):
"Well-sculpted and redolent of baked pear, with apple and pastry flavors that are well-spiced. The creamy finish is broad-textured and features nutmeg accents. Drink now through 2021. 190 cases made." – KM (Jun 30, 2018)
