Sonoma Loeb Envoy Chardonnay 2014


SKU 47986


Voluptuous and complex, this alluring wine displays aromas of guava, lime zest, quince and nectarine, as well as layers of melted butter, caramel and lemon curd. On the palate, a rich, creamy texture is balanced by bright acidity, which adds poise and focus to lush tropical and citrus flavors. The finish is long and intense, revealing enticing hints of cool-climate minerality and French oak spice.

Wine AdvocateThe light greenish gold 2014 Chardonnay Envoy plays it closer to the vest, with more structure but also more density than its sibling. Nevertheless, it is not quite as charming as its sibling at present. Some notes of orange oil, lemon oil and spice are all present in this medium to full-bodied, promising Chardonnay that seems to be built for cellaring of 10 years or more.

Wine EnthusiastGrapes from the Sangiacomo Vineyard provide a richness and complexity win this voluptuous wine, married with others from the Poe Vineyard next to Hyde. Together they offer a creamy, full-bodied expression of butterscotch, apple pie dusted in nutmeg and Mandarin orange.
