2013 DuMol "Isobel" Sonoma Coast Chardonnay

SKU #1227683 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Absolutely sensational, the 2013 Chardonnay Isobel comes exclusively from the 32-year-old vines of the Charles Heintz Vineyard. Barrel-fermented and aged 13 months on its lees, then four months in tank, this wine offers up quintessential Chardonnay notes such as white peach, wet stones and hazelnut. It exhibits great acidity, a full-bodied, honeyed texture, superb purity, and a tightly coiled, crisp, zesty finish. It should be even better with another 6-12 months of cellaring and keep for a decade or more. 94+ (RP) Inner quote mark (3/2016)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2013 Chardonnay Isobel Charles Heintz Vineyard is another soft, supple Chardonnay from DuMol. A wine of real pedigree, the Isobel graces the palate with exquisite finesse. Yellow orchard fruit, slate, smoke, apricot pit and spice notes are all laced together. The 2013 is delicate and nuanced from start to finish, although my sense is that the wine has not fully recovered from bottling, as the vineyard signatures aren't fully expressive yet. The classic Heintz texture comes through nicely, though. (AG) Inner quote mark (2/2016)

I love Chardonnay. It's an enduring mystery to me as to why it gets such a bum rap out there in the world, when it is, at its best, a truly all encompassing white wine. As exemplified here by Dumol's ISOBEL release, you get a real sense what real Chardonnay is, with the savory texture, the slight lemon zest, and toasted oak that rounds it out. A perfect choice for when you want something fairly full in body, yet also need enough bright acidity to pair with that delicious salmon.

From the great Charles Heintz Vineyard of the Russian River Valley in Sonoma County, this gorgeous bottling got some 30-35% new (hogshead) wood, with some good ol' fashioned lees time to build texture and character. After the wood treatment, it settled in a tank. It is bright and lively. Wet stones and minerality give this bottling a great expressive lift and finish that is hard to match.
