2015 Foggy Mountain Chardonnay Mendocino Ridge

90 Points - Wine Enthusiast - December 2017

This is a fresh, yet complex wine from a vineyard that sits at 2,000 feet elevation in the coastal mountains of Mendocino County. 100% Robert Young clones gives this wine great depth and balance.

Tasting Notes

Subtle, well-balanced and rich in texture, this full-bodied wine offers flavors of melon, citrus peel, pear, and pineapple mingled together with spicy notes, honey, and toasted almonds for a luscious round mouth feel. The wine finishes nicely with soft creme brûlée and hazelnut flavors with a creamy oak texture.

Winemaker Notes

This is a fresh, yet complex wine from a vineyard that sits at 2,000 feet elevation in the mountains of Mendocino County just seven miles in from the Pacific Ocean. Cool night and foggy mornings offer the perfect growing conditions for Chardonnay. Crisp acidy, and dense full bodied fruit highlights this coastal mountain chardonnay.

Cooperage Notes
