WINERY NOTES
Light straw hue. Expressive aromas of citrus zest and lime-blossom are highlighted by honeysuckle and wet flint. Thepalate is heightened by a compelling, site-specific coastal minerality, textural salinity, and precise acidity that carrybrilliantly through the finish. A true expression of both the grape and its proximity to the Pacific Ocean.

2014 Vintage Notes:2014 was an exceptional growing season along the true Sonoma Coast. The winter was mild in Northern California,yet the extreme coastal regions received significant rainfall in the latter part of winter and early spring. Thisprecipitation fully saturated the soil, and provided enough moisture to support our vineyards through the growingseason. Signs of budbreak first showed in early March and the onset of flowering commenced the late week of April.Summer was dominated by cool, sunny days with omnipresent fog just offshore. The onset of veraison was fairlywidespread by the third week of July, and the continuation of moderate and sunny weather interspersed with cool fogprevailed through the end of the growing season, allowing us to bring in chardonnay of exceptional depth of flavorand finesse.
