2021. From the D&G website “The base is Testa Carignane (62%) and Rava Grüner Veltliner (21%) and the spice is a mix of Fenaughty Grenache Blanc (6%) & Vermentino (6%) and Cloud Chardonnay (5%).”
Their tasting notes are spot on, especially the fruit rollup 😄
“Delightful tart notes of Bing cherry, cranberry and red raspberry spill forward on the palette along with the zing of chewy fruit-rollups. Deeper in, a flinty, volcanic minerality balances and grounds this high-energy wine, while a creamy mouthfeel completes the enchantment.”

This wine is actually California Chardonnay, made from grapes sourced in Monterey and Mendocino counties as well as Sonoma. The nose shows apricot and lemon pie, with a healthy dollop of oak spice. The oak comes through on the palate as well, in the form of some of the nicest “butter” I have tasted in a Chardonnay. Meyer lemon, pear and cantaloupe flavors also turn up. The acidity is quite nice and fresh, and the mouthfeel is full and rich. — a year ago
One of the most distinctive and flavorful Merlots I can remember tasting. Hint of oak in the nose. Earthy, full flavor and satisfying finish. Makes me want to visit the vineyard! — 5 years ago
