Winery Notes:

Patience is rewarded with our 2014 Soberanes Chardonnay. Shy, restrained fruit notes and a viscous minerality mingle on the nose and palate, blossoming over time with tropical fruit and floral aromatics. On the palate cream pineapple and lychee mix with melon and are lifted by lemon zest, straw, and crisp shale giving way to lovely perfumed jasmine on the finish.

VinousBright yellow. Pear and peach nectar, honey and smoky lees on the powerfully scented nose, joined by slowly emerging floral and mineral nuances. Silky and concentrated on the palate, offering hefty orchard and pit fruit flavors and a refreshingly bitter touch of quinine. The floral and smoke notes return on the spice-tinged finish, which hangs on with impressive tenacity.

Wine AdvocateFrom a cooler site, the 2014 Chardonnay Soberanes Vineyard offers lots of minerality as well as classic apple/orchard fruits and a hint of honeysuckle. Nicely concentrated, textured and with good acidity, it's slightly reserved and closed at the moment, but it will be better this time next year and keep through 2022.
