Critic Review
Wine Spectator, MaryAnn Worobiec
Juicy and vibrant, this has terrific purity to the lemon curd, yuzu and peach flavors, with a touch of salted butter. The finish features fresh herbal details of lemon verbena and ginger that linger.

"The 2020 Chardonnay Sonoma Coast is floral with honeysuckle, fresh pear, and lemon pastry. The palate leads with sweet fruit of candied green apple, baking spice, and frangipane. It has a medium build and is fresh amid its more confectionary qualities."

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. The Sangiacomo Vineyard is a certified sustainable vineyard, first planted in 1969. The block we source from is entirely "Old Wente" field selection. The proximity to the Pacific Ocean and San Pablo Bay makes this site ideal for growing Chardonnay.

Vintage NotesThe season started out with an unseasonably warm, dry winter. It wasn't until the end of March that cold, rainy weather arrived, and the mild spring gave the vines a strong, early start. Even with above normal temperatures throughout the summer and fall, we still experienced the marine influence that defines the limiting conditions of our premium vineyard sites - cool morning fog and afternoon wind. The resulting wine is irresistibly fresh, fruity and brimming with appeal.
