"Sourced from more than 20 vineyards throughout Sonoma County (with a bit of Bien Nacido fruit from Santa Barbara sneaking in), this is balanced between toasty lees, ripe mandarin-scented fruit and some discreet spice from oak. It’s generous and polished, a lobster wine par excellence."

"Straightforward flavors of ripe apple, pear and citrus show a touch of edgy citrus peel. Gains depth and complexity on the finish, where the oak adds a touch of buttery spice."–JL
"The 2013 Overlook Chardonnay has a bright, medium gold color with complex aromas of ripe pear, meyer lemon, sage and lemon curd. On the palate flavors of quince, pear blossom, apricot, and pie crust are balanced by lively citrus notes completing this refreshing wine. Drink now, but will continue to develop for 2-3 years."-Winery Tasting Notes
