Product Overview

The 2014 DuMOL Estate Vineyard Chardonnay is sourced from two of DuMOL's estate vineyards: O'Connell and Kearney. It's a wine that stylistically traverses European and Californian styles, showing restrained power, deep fruit flavor, and precise, tense acidity. Intense, complex aromas of mineral/slate, fennel, green olive, sweet mint, honeydew melon, lemongrass, and some earth tones. The palate is fruitier than the aromas suggest, with lime juice and quince jumping out a;long with hazelnut and lanolin.

Appellation: Sonoma Coast AVA
Aging: Fermented and aged 12 months in French oak barrels (40% new), then 6 months settling in tank prior to bottling
Production: 790 total cases
Winemaker: Andy Smith

96+ Points - Wine Advocate
"The 2014 Chardonnay Estate Vineyard reveals very pretty notes of peach blossoms and candied ginger over a core of nectarines, acacia honey, baking bread and marzipan. Medium-bodied with a silken texture and wonderful intensity of yeasty/savory flavors, it has a great frame of freshness and epic length. A beautiful, truly elegant style." -LPB, 2/28/17

94 Points - Vinous
"As always, the 2014 Chardonnay Estate Vineyard is one of the most phenolic, powerful wines in the range. This high density site produces powerful Chardonnays largely because of less direct sunlight that hits the fruit. Savory herbs, graphite, lemon confit and baked apple are some of the signatures, but, above all else, the Estate is a wine of tension, explosive energy and pure breadth. Accordingly, it is best cellared for at least a few years." -AG, Mar/2017
