Newly released, toasty oak and clean, crisp fruit. This is currently the last vintage of Chardonnay "21" and at the case price of $199 is truly a great value.

As always, the 30 rows in front of our tasting room somehow create magic year after year. Reliable and consistently high quality with depth of flavors focused around generous minerality and ample structure. This chardonnay has layers on its layers. Dijon Clone 76 from the Burgundy region. Very. Special. Stuff !!!
Ridiculously Good !
These vines are nurtured by growing in 8 by 5 spacing and are treated like family. One of the secrets here is we chose 420A rootstock which constricts the yield, thereby concentrating the fruit intensity. Steely minerality with white burgundy nuances. Crisp, snappy, lively--it's every bit that good.

Dijon Clone 4 fruit drinking beautifully. Tangerine, brioche, wet rocks, honeysuckle, white flowers, great acidity. Yet another great rendition of one of our most popular wines; full of fruit, beautifully balanced. Staff tasting recently showed this wine was in fantastic shape with plenty of life ahead to enjoy. Occupying the lion's share of the east facing front vineyard parcel, you can see these vines when you park your car visiting our winery. Perfect companion with rich seafood dishes...
