Wine Review: This pale yellow colored Chardonnay opens with a mild oak and melon bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied and rather acidic. The flavor profile is a spicy Anjou pear with a hint of oak and lemon. The finish is dry and its acidity lingers for a while after the wine is gone. The panel suggested pairing this Chard with shrimp and chicken paella or chicken, broccoli and sun dried tomatoes. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: This is the second vintage to be dominated by the Martinelli Charles Ranch on Bohan Dillon Road. Planted in 1982, this is one of the most spectacular vineyards in Sonoma County. Our Sonoma Coast bottling reflects its region and so is a bit crisper and leaner than our Russian River. 46% Martinelli Charles Ranch, 27% Sangiacomo (Green Acres and Tall Grass), 11% Sonoma Stage, 9% Hudson F-block, and 7% Rodgers Creek.
