2014 Olema Sonoma County Chardonnay

91 points James Suckling: "This is really refined and fresh with sliced apple and lemon aromas. Hints of stone too. Medium to full body, an almost salty undertone. Medium finish. Bright and tangy.

The cool Carneros region, where San Pablo Bay meets both Napa and Sonoma valleys, provides beautiful, fresh acidity and the key sense of balance for these fan-favorite wines. Tasting notes from the winemaker: "Enticing aromas of ripe apple, bright citrus and melon are layered with creme brulee, baking spices and a touch of butter. Vibrant flavors of tropical fr...

Lemon oil, white flowers, mint, almonds and smoke are all beautifully delineated in this transparent, super-finessed Chardonnay built on total finesse. The decision to pick a touch earlier plus the blocked malo style result in a focused, energetic Chardonnay that hits all the right notes. Every time I go to Mayacamas there is something new to see.

Belli Vineyards was made from small yields, and according to Dick Arrowood, it is one of the top three vintages in his 50 years of experience.

2014 William Hill North Coast Chardonnay

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Chardonnay North Coast, their largest cuvée (141,475 cases), is an excellent value in Chardonnay, coming primarily from Sonoma and Mendocino, with a small quantity from Lodi, Lake and Napa. It is aged in French and American oak, but the real emphasis is on the fruit-forward flavor profile. Fresh honeyed melons, citrus blossom and exotic orange notes are well-represented in this elegant, medium-bodied, refreshing and lively Chardonnay that has been put through 100% malolactic and finished at 13.8% natural alcohol. This is probably the best set o ...Read More »

2015 Banshee Sonoma Coast Chardonnay

Banshee started in 2009 when three wine industry buddies made a gamble and bought eight barrels of Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir--a gamble that paid off when they were able to sell all the wine within five weeks. Since then, they've developed relationships with some of the best growers in the area and have been producing beautiful wines with winemakers Ross Cobb (Hirsch, Flowers, Williams-Selyem) and Katy Wilson (Larue, Flowers). The 2015 coastal Chardonnay comes from Charles Heintz Vineyard, Wildcat Mountain Vineyard in Petaluma Gap and Bohemian Green Valley.... Read More »

2014 Rickshaw California Chardonnay

From the team at Banshee Wines, best known hereabouts for supplying us with excellently sourced Pinot Noir. Producer notes: "With the 2014 vintage we have a more than worthy follow up the popular 2013 version. Once again we tapped a plurality of sources (pretty much all coastal) from Santa Barbara all the way up to Mendocino that enabled us to create blend that hits a number of buttons simultaneously. We were able to pull some richness from warmer areas and some structure and aromatics from cooler areas. The resulting wine is fresh and vibrant aromatic... Read More »

2014 Butternut California Chardonnay

Aptly named and always a favorite in the rich California style, Butternut is a luxuriously textured Chardonnay. Aromas of baked apple, hazelnut, and crème brûlée fill the nose and reverberate on the palate with notes of peach, fig, butterscotch, and toasty oak. Grapes were sourced from important growing regions across California including Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino, and Monterey. The result is a generous and concentrated Chardonnay that creates a delicious snapshot of the state's growing regions.

2014 Ridge Vineyards "Estate" Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay

93 points Vinous: "The 2014 Chardonnay Estate opens with inviting aromatics. Bright, floral and nuanced, the 2014 offers striking complexity and energy. There is a hint of reduction, but that is not a negative. Readers who enjoy focused Chardonnays will find much to admire in the 2014. This is a gorgeous wine from Ridge. Lemon, white pepper and mint add the closing layers of nuance. In 2014, Ridge bottled less of their Monte Bello Chardonnay than the norm, which may be one of the reasons the Estate is so expressive. (AG)" (7/2016) 93 points Wine Spectator: "*Highly Recommended* Starts assertively oaky ...Read More »

2014 Talbott "Kali Hart" Monterey County Chardonnay

Vinous: "Light gold. Smoky orchard and pit fruit aromas are complicated by a hint of honey and a leesy quality. Round and pliant in texture; juicy nectarine and poached pear flavors pick up a subtle ginger note with air. Brighter citrus notes come up on the supple finish, which leaves behind a note of candied pit fruits. One of the pioneering wineries in the region, Talbott’s first vines were planted in 1982 at the Diamond T Vineyard. By the end of the ‘80s the Talbott wines were already on most wine lovers’ short lists of top California Chardonnays. The vineyard ...Read More »
