2008 La Crema Sonoma Coast Chardonnay

SKU #500004
Like the Burgundy wine region of France, the vineyards of Sonoma Coast offer an unusually long, cool and steady growing season. Lingering fog and wind from the nearby Pacific Ocean and moderate temperatures throughout the growing season contribute to the slow ripening process. With an extended "hang" time on the vines, the results are small berries with firm acidity and highly concentrated aromas and flavors.

ROBERT PARKER RATING: 88
ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: There are just under one-half million cases of the 2008 Chardonnay Sonoma Coast, which is an excellent value, particularly when one considers it comes from the high rent district of the Sonoma Coast. Elegant white peach, apricot, and lemon blossom notes are present in this medium-bodied, crisp, well-made, barrel-fermented Chardonnay (almost three-quarters is put through malolactic fermentation). The wine possesses good freshness, purity, and depth. It should drink well for 2-3 years.
WINE & SPIRITS RATING: 93
The 2008 release of Sonoma Coast Chardonnay opens with vibrant citrus and crisp green apple aromas, laced with subtle notes of butterscotch and clove. On the palate, flavors broaden into juicy orange and ripe yellow apple, with hints of vanilla and caramel tones adding richness and texture to a long, fresh finish.
