This classic expression of Russian River Chardonnay comes to us from one of the most important wine growing families in the Russian River region. And while they own and farm many of the finest Chardonnay and Pinot vineyards in the Russia River watershed, they save their best for their own small, boutique brand.
The producers bottling has already received a 92-point score from the Wine Advocate for the same wine we have in the bottle today. With a $50-price point, it will thrill you with its perfect balance of old and new world sensibility not to mention its incredible tariff of just $19/bottle!
This is an incredible offer folks, world-class Chardonnay at a fraction of the price. If you missed out on Lot 155 or Lot 156 RRV Chardonnay or love the Willamette Valley Chardonnay offerings, Lot 185 is right up your alley, presenting the best of both worlds for chardonnay...rich-yet-elegant, powerful-yet-layered with chiseled minerality and mouth-watering acidity perfectly balanced with rich fruit and well-deployed oak.

Pale yellow in the glass. Opens with butter and honeysuckle blossom over a core of Honeycrisp apples. With air, caramel, Fuji apple skin, and Bosc pear mesh with flinty river rock and white lilies. Rich on entry with ripe fruit perfectly delineated over crystalline minerality. The finish is perfectly-focused with lingering toasted vanilla unfurling over ripe nectarine and white peach in an electric, mouthwatering and pulsating finish. Fabulous.
40% new French oak, 100% barrel-fermented.
