VINTAGE NOTES: "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 avors 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 avors to develop that are crisp and vibrant."
"WINEMAKING Individual blocks from our best chardonnay vineyards of Sonoma County were harvested in the beginning and middle of September. Fermentation occurred utilizing native yeast in new and used French oak barrels. Aer alcoholic fermentation concluded, all barrels went through malolactic fermentation and continued aging on the lees. A small portion of this blend is fermented in stainless tank and was then moved to neutral foudre (large oak oval shaped tank) to age on the lees. Barrels and foudres were stirred monthly, helping to build a creamy texture and develop focused aromas."

Shipping wine around the country is very expensive. We charge about a third less than what it actually costs us. If you need to return your order (or if the wine gets returned back to us because you were unable to receive it after 3 attempts and you didn't email us to make other arrangements), we need to collect a return shipping fee that is up to double the amount of the shipping you paid. Upon receiving the wine back we will refund for the wine minus the initial shipping cost. In the event that we make a mistake we work with you to fix whatever went wrong at no additional cost to you.
