Lemon oil and floral notes jump from the glass in a graceful, chiseled Chardonnay long on class. The Chardonnay is done in equal parts stainless steel, barrel and concrete egg. collapse

Tart with acidity but lush with fruit, this is a lovely Chardonnay to drink with shellfish dishes. Honeyed notes accompany flavors of tropical fruit, Meyer lemon and lime. Oak lends touches of vanilla and a creaminess... expand Tart with acidity but lush with fruit, this is a lovely Chardonnay to drink with shellfish dishes. Honeyed notes accompany flavors of tropical fruit, Meyer lemon and lime. Oak lends touches of vanilla and a creaminess that finishes clean. collapse

Drink it over the next 3-4 years. This is the personal project of Ehren Jordan, who was the long-time apprentice at Turley Cellars. These are all elegant, cool climate, finesse-styled wines that were obviously influenced by European rather than New World models. Jordan owns estate vineyards in the Fort Ross-Seaview AVA and purchased fruit from some of the top growers in that region. - Robert Parker collapse
Wine Spectator, March 2014
Builds intensity and depth in a medium-bodied style, with Asian pear, lychee, green apple and green citrus notes, maintaining juiciness through the finish. Drink now through 2019. 1,000 cases made. –JL

Juicy and spicy but a bit hard-edged, with a citrus peel quality currently dominating the middle palate. Finishes classically dry and firm. Will this soften with time in bottle? collapse
