2015 "Wax & Wane" Chardonnay - SOLD OUT

Sonoma Valley
94pts Jeb Dunnuck Regional Report: "California: Exuberant, Powerful 2015's" The term lunatic was derived from the latin word luna after observing humans peculiar behavior during full moons. We're talking crazier than a Black Friday mall riot. Wax & Wane Chardonnay owes its flavor insanity to the Sangiacomo Vineyard located in Sonoma Valley- otherwise know as Valley of the Moon. Celestial chatter aside, the 2015 vintage brings richly flavored, Wente Clone madness to this release. Baked spiced pear, green apple and caramelized pineapple leap from the glass. This is a rich, fresh wine with a touch of citrus and mineral. Plush notes of vanilla créme brulée and toasted marshmallow show up for the party. Bâtonnage was performed to enhance complexity and mouthfeel. Lastly, the spicy long finish helps it stick the lunar landing. Wax on. Wane off.
