James MacPhail's Notes
With several new vineyard sources in the 2019 vintage, this wine continues to embody the misty and cool Sonoma Coast, with just a hint of creaminess balancing the bracing acidity. Expect a slightly more full-bodied wine than in previous vintages of this coastal Chardonnay. I recommend enjoying this wine chilled to perfection on a warm Spring or hot Summer evening.

- Sonoma Coast
Stretching from the rugged coastline in the north to former dairy land in the south, the Sonoma Coast AVA spans the length of Sonoma County. Wind, fog, and a salty Pacific Ocean fog create a rugged, cool-climate home for some of Sonoma’s most celebrated Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, heralded for their concentrated fruit flavors, notable balance, and complexity.Explore Vineyard
