Tasting Notes

Release Date: Spring 1995

I’m always in awe of our grower Andy Mac Gregor in Edna Valley.  Here he sits in mid-October, a full month after the rest of the state has harvested its Chardonnay vineyards, with every grape still on the vine.  What does he achieve for his patient gamble—a marvelous crop of intensely flavored Chardonnay fruit.  What do we achieve—a consistently delicious wine.

The ’93 offering displays the signature tropical fruit qualities this vineyard is known for, with a unique roundness in mouthfeel. It is totally barrel fermented and aged “sur lies” deep in our mountain cave for eleven months.

The ’93 is more flamboyant than recent vintages. Its decadence is only surpassed by its depth.
