tasting notes:

2017 sangiacomo vineyard chardonnay
opening with notes of rich pear tart and key lime pie, while white lily and hazelnut aromas playfully complement the ripe citrus notes found throughout this wine. slightly plush on the mid palate, grapefruit flavors intermingle with a juicy creamy texture creating a full-bodied chardonnay that is balanced with bright natural acidity. decadent with an oily mouth feel, the wente clone does not disappoint – loading this wine with power and grace, with a more crisp finish than our el diablo vineyard. enjoy now through 2024.

2017 el diablo vineyard chardonnay
planted in 2008 and farmed with care and attention to detail, the el diablo vineyard is hitting its prime years and achieving its full potential. perched on the eastern edge of the russian river valley appellation with 500 ft. elevation, this site thrives with ideal weather conditions to grow premium chardonnay. gravelly loam soil combined with tight row spacing between vines helps to further reduce vigor and encourage the competition between the vines. the result is low yields with intense, flavor-packed-clusters. the nose is a combination of grapefruit blossoms and lemon grass blended with aromas of toasted meyer lemon peel. textural and dense, the mid-pallet is loaded with candied pineapple, purity, and a slight lift from the 50% malolactic fermentation and its aging in 50% new french oak. a california chardonnay that could easily double as a puligny montrachet kissed on the lips!
