2015 "Wax & Wane" Chardonnay

Sonoma Valley
94 points • JEB DUNNUCK • "California: Exuberant, Powerful 2015's" January 2018. • 94 points • ROBERT PARKER • Wine Advocate • Another concentrated, backward wine is the 2015 Chardonnay Wax & Wane which comes from the Sangiacomo Vineyard in Sonoma and is all Wente Clone. Aged 20 months in new french oak, it's medium gold color, followed by a Burgundian minerality, seashell, citrus, and orchard fruit-driven aromas and flavors. Medium to full-bodied, beautifully balanced, nuanced and focused, it's a real deal and will keep for a decade or more. -Jeb Dunnuck Coming from the Sangiacomo Vineyard, the 2015 Chardonnay Wax & Wane is scented of ripe apricots, peaches and honeycomb with touches of baking bread, ginger and nutmeg. Rich and decadent in the mouth, it has a lively backbone and is packed with flavor layers, finishing long and creamy. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown Wine Advocate
