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.

Wine Enthusiast
"Rich and brooding with intensely perfumed oak, this is a layered white made from grapes grown throughout the appellation. It delivers medium-bodied weight and grip, with lush apple and gingersnap flavors."

"A blend of fruit from vineyards on the coastal side of Sonoma County, many providing the more ambitious single-vineyard wines for Patz & Hall, this is the freshest of the 2016 chardonnays we tasted from the winery. The wine’s clarity is impressive, tightening around peach-pit flavors and fleshier notes of nectarine and kumquat. Its oak influence remains in the background, reading as cinnamon notes and crossing over into mineral edges that bring to mind sandstone. It’s plump, lively and rich, delivering exactly what you’d want from a coastal chardonnay."

Wine Spectator
"This is focused on the minerally side, with vibrant acidity supporting the dried peach, melon and Fuji apple flavors accented by a twist of citrus rind. Chamomile hints show on the finish."

"The entry-level Chardonnay is the 2016 Chardonnay Sonoma Coast and was aged, on lees, in 32% new Burgundy barrels. Light gold colored with supple notes of orchard fruits, white flowers, and spice, it has adequate acidity, a forward texture, and a clean, classy finish. It's a rock-solid introduction to the wines of this estate."
