The Wine Advocate, Lisa Perotti-Brown
"The 2016 Chardonnay Bob's Ranch gives up notions of ripe grapefruit, lemon tart and preserved kumquats with touches of honeysuckle, beeswax and allspice. Medium-bodied, it delivers a great intensity of citrus flavors with a racy line carrying the fruit to a long, zesty finish."


Bob’s Ranch Vineyard is characterized by its proximity to the Pacific Ocean. Coastal breezes along with low rolling hills and morning fog define this cool climate. This marine layer keeps the vineyard 15 degrees cooler than the rest of the Russian River. The terroir is mostly fine sandy loam soil that gives excellent drainage and leads to low vigor vines and small yields.

Wine Facts

The 2016 harvest was early, with slightly lower than normal yield, but exceptional fruit quality. After many years of drought, we experienced winter rains that helped alleviate the dry conditions that plagued us for the last four years. The entire ripening season enjoyed cooler than average days and nights. July and August were particularly temperate allowing for longer hang times, which ripened the grapes uniformly.
