Aromas of apricot lemon, gala apple, subtle oak and spice. Flavors of lemon drop, white stonefruit, yellow plum and honeydew melon. Richly textured and concentrated with balanced acidity that drives a lingering finish. Classic pairings include cracked crab, lobster, shrimp and scallops prepared in a buttery, creamy sauce. A simple roast chicken. Butternut squash risotto is a brilliant choice. A bottle of Chardonnay will even last into the dessert course. Try it with key lime pie for a taste sensation.

Wine AdvocateThe 2017 Chardonnay Sonoma Coast comes about 48% from the Russian River Valley. It was mostly barrel fermented and aged about eight months in 18% new oak. It surprises with its freshness and restraint. The nose is scented of toast, candle smoke, white peach and poached pears with accents of hay and honeysuckle. It's medium-bodied with a slightly creamy texture and great flavor intensity, refreshed by juicy acidity and finishing long and toasty. This is an incredible value-well made, balanced and tasty. 530,000 cases produced.
