The 2017 Chardonnay Bearwallow Vineyard, from a site in the Anderson Valley, has an incredibly Burgundian bouquet of liquid minerality, white flowers, spice, and crushed citrus that develops remarkable complexity and depth as it sits in the glass. Medium-bodied and elegant on the palate, it has beautiful balance, integrated acidity, and a great finish. It needs 2-3 years of bottle age (it still offers plenty of pleasure today) and will drink beautifully for 7-8 years or more.

The 2017 Chardonnay Bearwallow Vineyard is creamy, ample and super-expressive, with superb textural richness and tons of character. Lemon confit, white flowers, mint and light tropical overtones all grace this supple, beautifully textured Chardonnay. This is such a delicious wine now, but it will likely acquire more complexity in time.

The 2017 Chardonnay Bearwallow Vineyard has a minerally nose to begin, with crushed shell and stone scents over a core of warm white peaches, pie crust, lime peel, fresh apple and pear fruit plus hints of spring blossoms. Light to medium-bodied, it offers intense, lively fruits with tangy acidity and a long, minerally finish.
