2014 DARMS LANE “OAK KNOLL” CHARDONNAY
Arising from Napa Valley’s distinguished Oak Knoll District, Darms Lane represents an upper echelon level Chardonnay at a down-to-earth price. Notably, Darms Lane’s winemaker is Brian Mox… As the former winemaker for Lewis Cellars, Brian secured his place in winemaking history when his 2010 Lewis Reserve Cabernet was named the #9 wine in the world on the 2013 Wine Spectator’s Top 100 list.
This 100% Chardonnay was aged sur lie, a French term meaning literally ‘on the sediment.’ The sur lie aging plays a large role in contributing to this wine’s very deep, profound flavors. Unsurprisingly, the previous vintage of this brilliant Chardonnay made my top 10 list in 2014.
Chardonnay is one of the most largely planted varietals in the world, with an estimated 400,000 acres growing world-wide… Here’s a chance to mitigate your risk of choosing just an “average” bottle of Chardonnay, and pick one that is inspiring and may even give you goose bumps when you take your first sip.
