VINTAGE NOTES: The 2018 vintage set records for harvest volumes and surely will dazzle with quality. The growing season began with an unusually wet spring and was a bit cooler, allowing grapes to ripen gradually and develop more complex flavors and aromas. e chardonnay vineyards used in this inaugural blend are sourced from all over Sonoma County, from high elevation vineyards above Alexander Valley that bring tension and power, to Bennett Valley where cooler growing conditions allow flavors to develop that are crisp and vibrant.
