A blend of 100% estate fruit, the 2018 Lucia Chardonnay is sourced from select barrels of the Pisoni and Soberanes vineyards. Combining distinctive characteristics from different vineyard sites, two characters become one as this youthful greenish-gold wine fills the glass. The higher elevations of Pisoni Vineyards add rich notes of baked apple, Bosc pear, and lemon curd, while the rocky, unyielding soil of the Soberanes Vineyard showcases signature notes of citrus blossom and wet stone. On the palate, complexity reigns as depth and nuance of flavor mingle seamlessly with bright, age-worthy acidity and a persistent, structured finish.

There are two Chardonnay under this label, both terrific. The 2018 Chardonnay Santa Lucia Highlands boasts a medium gold color as well as Burgundian notes of mulled stone fruits, toasted bread, spice, and subtle oak. It's rich, medium-bodied, beautifully balanced, and just a classic Chardonnay that does everything right. I'd drink it over the coming 4-5 years, yet I'm sure it will keep longer.

Richly spiced, with flan accents to the apple pastry and pear tart flavors, backed by crunchy acidity. Creamy midpalate, leading to a finish that lingers with dried savory notes. Drink now through 2025. 480 cases made.

Toasted macadamia nut, baked orange, light buttercream and sea salt converge on the lush and engaging nose on this bottling. It's plush and smooth on the palate, where salted almond, baked lemon and white peach flavors arise.
