The 2018 Chardonnay Estate Vineyard comes from an estate vineyard in the Fort Ross-Seaview AVA and spent 11 months in 10% new French oak.

This carries to a medium-bodied, nicely concentrated Chardonnay with a distinct marine, salty, oyster shell-like minerality, beautiful overall balance, bright acidity, and a clean finish. Think Chablis meets the Sonoma Coast. It's going to evolve for a solid decade or more.
