2019 - this was what I was waiting for in the 2019 lineup! One of my favorites from Ceritas so far. Rich and mineral nose; and that compelling combination of acid + stone fruit/melon on the tongue. Floral and bright with layers to explore once it’s open 30 minutes.

A new Sonoma vineyard for the producers. Good balance. Minerality, some citrus.

My favorite chard in the Ceritas lineup, but all are worthy of trying.

A Chardonnay that needs a couple more years of bottle age, IMO.

Crisp, bright, zippy acidity dancing across the palate. Very early, but nice foil for the richness of Roast chicken with dressing, egg noodles, and thick creamy gravy. Comfort food masterpiece.. and the wine cuts the fat and offers up citrus, apple, pear notes. Amazing balance, with authority snd power and a 40 second finish. The wine really starts to strut its stuff as it warms. Perhaps my favorite domestic chard/ Pinot producer. Bravo.

The nose takes some time to open up, but when it does it’s delicate and complex, with notes of wet stone, tart green apple and fresh, cold, unripe pear. The bouquet has notes of almond, and the flavor is bold and lingering, with pear, and stone fruits

A beautiful chard. I consistently get pears and stone fruits from this offering. My favorite in the Ceritas chard lineup - just have to find more!

Outstanding. Very Chablis in style. Lemony crisp greatness. #Ceritas Zephyr Chardonnay 2018.
