Winery Notes:

Named after Paul’s great-grandfather, the small 5-acre estate dedicated to chardonnay displays bright  golden straw and inviting notes of ginger spice, almond, and lemon confit. A creamy mouthfeel on the palate brings delineated flavors of Gravenstein apple, dried apricot, vanilla bean, and brioche that come together with a crunchy acidity giving the wine a lively finish.

Jeb DunnuckThe 2017 Chardonnay Edward James Estate is another Russian River release that has a vivid medium gold color as well as exotic notes of honeyed citrus, pineapple, white flowers, and some salty minerality. It's pure, medium to full-bodied, has a seamless texture, and a great finish. The oak is nicely integrated, and given the overall balance here, it's going to evolve nicely for 7-8 years at a minimum.

Wine AdvocateA barrel sample, the 2017 Chardonnay Edward James Estate bursts out of the glass with exuberant white peaches, grapefruit and lemon meringue pie scents with touches of honeycomb, fresh ginger and almond croissant. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers mouth-coating spicy and savory layers with great vibrancy and a refreshing finish. 600 cases are expected to be produced and released in August 2019.
