The 2014 Lauren Estate Chardonnay is the pinnacle of our winemaking efforts. At over 15 years old, our first estate vineyard has hit its stride over the past few vintages. Please note the greenish hue on the edge of the glass, which is indicative of the health of the wine. Powerful fruit aromatics of ripe stone fruits, such as apricots and nectarines, pour from the glass. These explosive fruits eventually give way to a profound depth of secondary notes. Exotic spices, fresh hay, white flowers, flint and lemongrass round out a dynamic array of soil born aromas, which reflect the quality terroir. The palate offers incredible texture and wonderful phenolic structure, which should provide plenty of cellar life over the next 10 to 15 years. The wine has a slight hazy clarity showing our commitment to minimal intervention winemaking.

Wine AdvocateFlirting with perfection is the 2014 Chardonnay Lauren Estate, from 16-year-old vines, which offers great extract, richness, and plenty of honeysuckle, tropical fruit and citrus oil. The wine, showing its concentration because of the drought year, should easily last 12-15 years.

Wine SpectatorSleek and graceful, offering rich, elegant flavors, with subtle shades of peach, nectarine, honeydew, tangerine and light oak. Impressive for the juicy aftertaste and lingering presence. Drink now. 750 cases made.
