More fresh and crisp, with a beautiful lemon curd, white flowers, and hints of hazelnut, the 2015 Chardonnay Sierra Mar Vineyard is beautifully balanced, elegant and clean on the palate, with a great finish. Coming from gravelly, loamy soils in the Santa Lucia Highlands and aged 11 months in French oak, it’s terrific today yet will evolve gracefully for at least 4-5 years, and I suspect even longer.

Deeply pitched pear nectar, tangerine and honeydew scents are complemented by hints of dusty minerals and white flowers. Fleshy and impressively concentrated, offers palate-caressing pit and orchard fruit flavors that show a striking blend of depth and vivacity. Tightens up slowly on the mineral-accented, majestic long finish, which leaves honeysuckle, pear and candied orange notes behind. -- Josh Raynolds

The 2015 Chardonnay Sierra Mar has a tropical nose of pineapple and passion fruit with touches of brioche, butterscotch and cedar plus a waft of orange blossom. Medium to full-bodied, rich, opulent and concentrated, the palate is lifted by a wonderful backbone of freshness, and it finishes with lingering tropical notes. One for the hedonists! - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

Plump Meyer lemon aromas meet rounded coconut, pineapple cream and honeysuckle on the nose of this bottling from the pioneering Franscioni family. On the palate, it's tightly wound, needing a second to breathe before revealing a sharp lemon peel freshness that cuts through the peachy fruit flavors.

Concentrated dried ginger, ripe pear and pineapple flavors are richly spiced and intense. Buttery and rich on the finish, with hints of smoke. Drink now through 2021. 307 cases made.–KM
