2015 Adam's Vineyard Chardonnay

Price: $60.00

We are delighted to introduce the inaugural vintage of Adams Vineyard Chardonnay. Our newest estate vineyard sits above the fog line in Forestville, overlooking the Russian River below. Planted in 2013, this 9-acre site is warmer than both Quail Hill and Susannas, adding yet another Russian River Valley profile to our collection. A light golden color in the glass, rich aromas of crushed pineapple, ripe peach and lemon zest are lightly scented by white floral tones. The opulent entry brings notes of guava, mango, lemon oil and grapefruit rind, leading to a long, textured finish that echoes the palate. Enjoy upon release through 2021.

2015 Quail Hill Vineyard Chardonnay

Price: $60.00

The 45-acre Quail Hill Vineyard has five distinct blocks of Chardonnay. The largest Block 14 was planted in 1972 to the Rued Chardonnay Clone known for its stunning floral notes; the remaining vines are Old Wente Clone, which add a weighty round richness to this release. A pale spun gold when poured out, this wine opens with vibrant aromas of citrus blossom, honeysuckle, mandarin orange and lemon verbena. On the palate, flavors of dried apricot, stone fruit and beeswax emerge, with appealing mineral notes of pencil shaving and crushed granite. The bright acidity is nicely balanced by an elongated finish. Enjoy upon release or cellar through 2022.

Price: $60.00

A gift from our Proprietor Lynn Fritz to his wife Anisya, Susannas Vineyard is a 20-acre site along Highway 116 in the Sonoma Coast section of Sebastopol. Early morning fog, long shadows and the cooling effects of the west winds give this wine beautifully structured acidity and a long finish. The 2016 Susannas Vineyard Chardonnay emits a clear pale straw color. Bright aromas of lemon pot de crème, baked pear and crushed pineapple emerge. An opulent mouthfeel highlights flavors of orange blossom, flint and honeydew with warm tones of baking spice. The clean finish highlights fresh citrus and minerality.
