The 2015 vintage was early and followed a dry, warm year. Fortunately, the growing season passed without extreme heat, resulting in concentrated flavors with bright acid. By gently whole cluster pressing and barrel fermentation in French oak, this Chardonnay has lovely texture to balance the vibrant palate. Straw gold. Intriguing aromas of grilled citrus, stone fruits and roasted almond. In addition to the bright fruit, the palate has racy minerality, great structure and a long finish. This full bodied wine has nice acidity to keep it in balance and makes a nice complement to most seafood, poultry and pasta with lighter sauces, and makes and excellent pairing with mushrooms (especially chanterelles and morels).

Starting with the 2014 Chardonnay Sta. Rita Hills, this beauty comes from the two estate vineyards (Sanford & Benedict and La Rinconada) and was fermented and aged all in French oak. It offers a terrific bouquet of ripe melon, pineapple and sautéed apples to go with a rich, yet racy style on the palate. It has plenty of flesh and texture, good mid-palate density and a great finish, all suggesting it's going to keep for 4-5 years.

This offers plenty of minerality to the green apple and fresh-cut pear flavors. Buttery and spicy notes are joined by savory accents on the finish. Drink now through 2021. 7,498 cases made.

This appellation blend is very light in color and also quite restrained aromatically, with the slightest hints of lime, lemongrass and vanilla on the nose. The sip is quite tense, powered by lime acidity and a chalky mouthfeel. A richer white-peach element arises toward the finish.

The 2015 Chardonnay Sta Rita Hills ventures forth with ripe apples, fresh pears and musk perfume scents, plus underlying hints of baker's yeast and almonds. Medium-bodied and elegantly fruited in the mouth, it has a softly spoken character with a nice suggestion of texture and some spiciness on the finish.
