MACROSTIE CHARDONNAY, WILDCAT VINEYARD, SONOMA COAST 2014
NVWE Notes: Reminiscent of elegant Puligny-Montrachet, the nose of this intense mountain Chardonnay fans out as a mineral-braced, slightly exotic mix of golden fig, spiced apple, lemon sorbet, grilled white peach, coriander and celery seed, brioche and baking-spice scents. It is tongue-coating yet piquant on the palate, where the racy mouth-feel is entree to a wave of gooseberry, lemon peel, Fuji apple, nectarine, golden fig, peach tart, Persian raisin, orange blossom, toast, vanilla and coriander seed flavors that carry through a long, mineral-laced finish. Exquisitely food-balanced, it should retain its beauty for another four years. 1080 cases produced.
The 2014 Wildcat Mountain Vineyard Chardonnay gives notes of ripe apples and pears over hints of baking bread, crushed stones and allspice. The medium-bodied palate gives a good amount of elegant, understated savory and mineral flavors with a silken texture and refreshing finish.
This wine has a voluptuous rich-oak character, complemented by ripe apple and full-bodied concentration. It celebrates a warm, generous vintage in its ability to offer plenty of fruit and acidity, delightfully balanced by a lime chaser. 3/1/2017 Virginie Boone
