Patz & Hall Sonoma Coast Chardonnay 2016

$34.99

Great new Chardonnay release from Patz & Hall - dont miss. 91 Points Robert Parker:  "The Chardonnay Sonoma Coast offers aromas of honey-drizzled peaches, poached pears, musk melon and butterscotch. Medium to full-bodied with a pleasant oiliness to the texture and plenty of butter-laced stone fruit flavors on offer, it has great harmony and persistence" In addition to reflecting the dazzling quality of the 2014 growing season, this vintage includes grapes from an exceptional new vineyard that was planted specifically for us by renowned winegrower Mark Sanchietti. Though it comes from a who’s who of world-class Sonoma Coast vineyards, the core of this Chardonnay is from Sanchietti Vineyard Pleasant Hill and Gap’s Crown, with the Sanchietti fruit adding richness and texture and the Gap’s Crown grapes providing minerality and vibrant acidity. Blended with grapes from acclaimed vineyards like Parmalee Hill, Dutton Ranch and Durell Vineyard, this wine is beautifully complex with aromas and flavors of pineapple, guava, honeydew and lime zest, as well as secondary notes of toasted almond macaroon, cinnamon and sugar cookies. On the palate, it is plush and mouthfilling, flowing to a long, layered finish"

Beauty. Hits above an entry Sonoma coast. Nicely balanced. A bit of oak, a bit of butter, a bit of acid, a bit of citrus, etc... all works.

Funky aroma, almost sulphuric. Mediocre Chardonnay. Notes of buttered bread and green and golden apples. Falls flat at the finish. Meh.
