A taste is worth a thousand words.
The Ferrington Vineyard Chardonnay is our most age-worthy Chardonnay. I say that with slight hesitation because it is a close race across the board with our Recherché Reserve Selection Chardonnays. What makes Ferrington so distinctive is the balance of complex fruit character and the intense citrusy acidity. I believe the wine just starts to show its worth 5-6 years after the vintage and will peak between 12-15 years. For this release I wanted to give you an example of the evolution of this incredible wine. Experience two vintages - three years apart and look forward to the possibilities.

2014 Recherché Reserve Pinot Noir - Donum Estate - Carneros

 If a list of the most talented wine growers in California were to be published - Anne Moller-Racke's name would top the list. The wines produced at the Donum Estate are consistently the best examples of what is possible with Pinot Noir in California. We are blessed to have the opportunity to work with a small lot of grapes from this very special and coveted vineyard. This wine is a true gem that reflects the passion and skill that starts in the vineyard. Enjoy - Chuck

This release we are highlighting two great vineyards from the Anderson Valley. Ferrington Vineyard situated on the valley floor just north of Boonville and Deer Meadows, the highest elevation vineyard in the region. In addition, we've included multiple vintages to highlight how these incredible wines develop over time.
