Tried several bottles, my new Favorite white, just love mountain fruit! Named for mountain range dividing Napa & Sonoma, old stone winery dug into side of dormant volcano crater in 1889, remained in production ever since. Pale lemon with aromas of Tropical and stone fruit with complex spice and blossom notes. On the palate apple, pear and citrus zest flavors with light oak and honey tones, fresh and vibrant, well integrated. Long finish ending with flinty mineral characteristics. Long aging potential. Nice!

Full-bodied magic this vintage. Lemon almond shortbread, green pear buttercream and a ripping bead of tangy underripe pineapple acid.

A smash hit paired with chicken, braised with white wine, lemon, chilis, cilantro and garlic.

A distinctive lemonade color in the glass with a wide brim. The nose is a bit shy upon opening showing aromas of pears and lemon zest. After some air, you’ll get more defined notes of meringue, white flowers, and vanilla. Trace amounts of oak.

Such a well made, fun Chardonnay that wants you to take it seriously. Bereft of bracing acidity or a buttery nature, this is a much more old school style, rather than what you get from everywhere else. Of course, that mountain fruit helps immensely. Beautiful purity of fruit and structure here.

On the broad and expansive palate, the fruit is big and ripe but that should calm as time goes by. This is still just a baby. Green apples, lemon rind, and juicy peaches. This is a terrific Chardonnay.
