The Sonoma Coast is a renowned growing region known for its cool microclimates that contribute to slow grape maturation and optimum ripeness. The well respected and highly sought after Sangiacomo Vineyard produces a rich, palette-driven Chardonnay with great texture and nuance.
The Roberts Road Vineyard, located at the northern end of the Petaluma Gap with cobbled alluvial soil and bench deposits, has proven itself to be the ideal location influenced by morning fog, warm days and strong afternoon winds leaving the grapes plenty of hang time and development of distinct flavors.
Straw colored, with aromas of baked apple, Meyer lemon and buttered pastries. A great balance between bright, ripe apple and pear and toasted wheat. Opulent and round on the palate, yeasty richness is followed up by baked pear, lemon curd and sweet oak. The finish is carried through by honeyed fruits – apple, quince and pears- with a subtle spice of vanilla and clove. Nuanced and luxurious.
