“This captivating wine exhibits aromas of orange blossom, lemon and hints of toasty oak. Legendary Russian River flavors include spiced pear and tangerine flavors enhanced by sensational mineral components that add to the complexity. Brimming with vibrant acidity and freshness, this wine has incredible depth of flavors that make it ideally suited for a wide array of menus. This Chardonnay shows stunning balance with a lingering, crisp finish that will continue to show beautifully for another 8-10 years.”

“From the Pellegrini Olivet Lane Vineyard on Olivet Road, this wine is impressive and memorable, a true star of winemaking and region. Beautiful in color, it begins with a touch of reductive oak and butter, with a squeeze of lemon foreshadowing things to come. Big-boned, it shines in pear, tangerine and a tangle of tangy acidity.”

“The Pellegrini family planted more than 20 acres of chardonnay, an old Wente selection, at Olivet Lane in 1975. The vines grow on a bench above the Santa Rosa Plain, near the geographical center of the Russian River Valley; in 2014, the region’s warm days and cool evening breezes ripened the fruit to a rich and appetizing balance. This has the concentration and depth of the best old-vine Sonoma chardonnays: a sleek, succulent lemon-curd flavor that meets earthen spice at the edges, lasting on invigorating peach-pit and honeycomb scents and mouthwatering acidity. Age it for another two or three years to let the oak and fruit merge.”
