2013 Dutton Ranch Chardonnay
Dutton Ranch, Russian River Valley

93 Points - Wine Enthusiast, 3/1/2016
“Lemon meringue and custard provide decadence to this vineyard-designated wine, the site planted to decades-old vines. It becomes sublime as it opens, spicy and soft in quince and Asian pear. The finish returns to the opening theme, delivering a punch of caramel.” - Virginie Boone

Double Gold Medal, 2016 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition

Derived from old vines and rooted in powdery Goldridge soil, this is a vibrant and refreshing white wine, bursting with aromas of honeysuckle, marshmallow and citrus zest. The 25% new French oak curves the aromas with hints of roast vanillin and balances the middle palate. A flood of lemon tart and fresh tropical fruit flavors hold steady for a lengthy finish. The acidity is threaded through this wine for a stimulating mouthfeel. Properly cellared, this wine will drink well to 2021 and beyond. PRODUCTION: 270 CASES
