2014 BLACK CORDON RESERVE SONOMA COAST CHARDONNAY

$65.00 $65.00

Have you ever wondered what it takes to make a rich, buttery Chardonnay?  It starts in the vineyard with ripe fruit that’s bursting with flavor.  The winemaker then barrel ferments the grapes in order to increase depth and richness.  Next, you’ll convert the crisp malic acid, (think Green Apples), into  softer lactic acid (think butter and milk).  This conversion process produces diacetyl which is what gives butter its flavor.   Want to taste a perfect example of this?  Black Cordon’s 2014 Reserve Chardonnay is one of the biggest, richest, most buttery and opulent Chardonnays that I’ve tasted all year… It was mindfully created by Julian Gonzalez who gained experience as head winemaker for Paul Hobbs consulting where he worked on some of Napa and Sonoma’s most sought after wines.

This Chardonnay comes from a single vineyard located in close proximity to the Pacific Ocean.  On the palate the wine has significant weight and decadent texture and as the wine opens up, exquisite flavors wrap your palate in a silky blanket, laced with Meyer Lemon, ripe pineapple, butterscotch, and vanilla.  This is a stunning example of a true California Style Chardonnay and it should not be missed.

Tasting Notes, "The nose begins big and rich with ripe pear, honeysuckle, butterscotch, white flowers and sweet vanilla. It is monumental on the palate with opulent red apple, lemon curd, and just enough acidity to balance the hedonistic richness.  If you love big, rich, opulent Chardonnays, this one is spectacular."
94 Points, Kevin M. Vogt, Master Sommelier
