Wine Profile
Ratings
89 - Wine Enthusiast. Searing acidity marks this wine, which tastes like it has a lot of Edna Valley fruit in the blend. It also shows bright, strong, long hangtime flavors of limes and pineapples. It’s actually quite a fine Chardonnay, dry and low in alcohol. A great value at this price. Editors’ Choice.
Vineyard Notes
Though the 2009 growing season was dry, with just over 12 inches of rain, it was very temperate and ideal for grape growing. The summer featured foggy mornings followed by cool afternoons with daily high temperatures in the mid 70s. The crop was the largest since 2005. An unusually long heat spell started on Labor Day, initiating a fast and furious harvest. The quality of the fruit was exceptional with concentrated, intense flavors and balanced acidity.
