Ceritas Peter Martin Ray Vineyard Chardonnay 2014

This wine always carries a distinct signature of yellow tree fruit, a damp earthiness, and an almost saline-like minerality underlining the wine. Also, texturally I find this to be the most rich of the Ceritas line-up, approaching an oily like mouthfeel but always balanced its acid. The vintage also seemed to express a little more cut than I remember, it’s driving along the palate beginning to end. The 2014 is showing great, beginning to uncoil and reveal it’s true nuance. White WOTN for me

I don't think there are too many California chardonnays that can top this. I know of one or two that may rival it, but Ceritas keeps churning out beautifully acidic chard!

Found this to be the most Burgundian of the flight. Mineral, yellow orchard fruits, richer and round texture but not overly heavy.

Sleek, spicy, creamy Santa Cruz Chardonnay. Some oak but I might not have noticed if not tasted just after great Chablis.

Savory notes mix with citrus and mineral. Excellent acidity. Very fine.

Unfortunately flawed. White yeasty particulate matter throughout and cloudy. Bitter flavor. :(

Lemon zest and honeysuckle. Zippy and acidic. Giving the other bottles a lot more time.
