Winemaker Terry Adams Notes
Intense aromas of white peach, baked apple and nectarine join toasty oak, cedar and coffee, with an earthiness that declares this to be a very special wine. As you begin to enjoy the wine in your glass, a well balanced wine emerges with a solid acid backbone, rich, medium to heavy in weight with a broad yet still firm mid-palate. The influence of Les Pierres is seen in the lean structure and touch of minerality. Flavors of melon, pineapple, key lime pie leap forward, alongside more traditional lemon, apple, pear, and cantaloupe — the full array of Sonoma’s cornucopia of fruit, joining a nutty, spicy, lightly oaky profile that stakes out a unique territory sure to please those who love Chardonnay. The wine is fermented and aged in ...more... small French Oak barrels for seven months where it undergoes malolactic fermentation to completion. The more mature influence of older vines can be seen in the wine, which promises to continue to evolve over time, bringing joy to both winemaker and those lucky enough to savor a glass.
