Notes from the Winemaker:
This food-friendly Chardonnay shows juicy, fresh fruit aromatics and flavors of apple blossom, honeydew melon, guava and grapefruit zest. The creamy texture and rich flavors of toasted oak are framed by a bright acidity that lifts the fruit and leaves a lingering finish that will keep you wanting more.

WINEMAKER NOTES:
Every year, our winemaker hand-selects desirable vineyards sites from microclimates in the Sonoma Coast. This 2018 vintage includes grapes exclusively from revered American Viticultural Areas (AVAs) including Russian River Valley and Los Carneros.

APPELLATION: Sonoma Coast including, 42% Russian River Valley and 58% Los Carneros

AGING: 9 months on 50% new French Oak

Ratings & Reviews
90 Points, Smart Buy & #80 Top 100 of 2020 - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Rich, with flint and sea salt notes to the dried fig, quince and preserved lemon flavors, followed by egg cream accents on the well-spiced finish. Drink now through 2023. 5,200 cases made." - KM (Nov 2020)

92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2017 vintage):
"The 2017 Reata Chardonnay Sonoma Coast has an open nose of warm white peaches, apple cobbler, orange blossom, crushed shell and hazelnut with notions of honey and quince paste. The palate is medium-bodied and rounded with intense, honeyed flavor layers, seamless freshness and a long, flavorful finish. Grapes for this come mainly from the Russian River Valley and Carneros." - Erin Brooks (Dec 2019)
