Acacia Vineyard is in the heart of the Carneros wine region, with stellar views of vineyards and the bay. This premium winegrowing region enjoys the cooling influence of the Pacific Read More...
Ocean and summer fog, making it an ideal growing area for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Acacia was a pioneer in this appellation when it began in 1979 and continues to craft Burgundian-inspired varietals which have been consistently delicious beyond their price point.

And on the subject of price points, the plan with this program is to put the best and most representative of California’s Chardonnay growing regions in a bottle and give it a very refreshing price. So here you have it: Monterey, Santa Maria Valley, Paso Robles, and even a touch of Carneros fruit blended together to make a really lovely sipper (someone forgot to tell the wine it shouldn’t taste this good at $9.99). An exotic aroma is followed by a rainbow of stone and tropical fruits, it’s bright and crisp, and the finish is long. This is one to procure by the case – people are forever dropping by!

Notes from the Winemaker:
The diversity of clones and our cool climate vineyards make our Chardonnay unique. The natural high acidity allows us to ferment 100% in barrels, Read More...
and go through 100% Malolactic Fermentation. We strive to accomplish the best of both worlds - high acidity and minerality like a traditional Burgundy yet with roundness on the palate as a traditional California Chardonnay.
Color: bright, pale gold with hints of white gold and citrine
On the nose: intense notes of apricot, cedar, Meyer lemon, toasted bread and granite with hints of banana, white chocolate, pineapple and cloves On the palate: bright entrance evolving on fresh citrus with touches of herbs, minerality and white flowers, lingering on fresh vanilla

coming from the Pacific Ocean. This climate is well suited to the more delicate, early-ripening varieties such as Chardonnay because the fruit develops more slowly and consistently, resulting in wines of exceptional flavor, complexity, and character.

This Chardonnay has tropical aromatics with notes of citrus, crème brulee and integrated oak. It has a round, lush mouthfeel with balanced acidity and a long finish of orange peel, tangerine and toasted almond.

The David Arthur Estate is located high on Pritchard Hill, on the eastern side of the Napa Valley. The rough mountain terrain and rocky red soils provide ideal growing conditions Read More...
for wine grapes such as Cabernet Sauvignon. In 1978, Donald Long and his 28 year old son David began the epic job of building roads, clearing land and finally planting wine grapes. Although David lacked a formal viticultural education, he learned hands-on by working in the vineyards and cellars of local wineries such as the Chappellet and Joseph Phelps. The first vintage of Chardonnay was harvested in 1985, followed by Cabernet Sauvignon in the nineties. As his experience and knowledge of the land grew, David learned the ability of these hills to grow the very finest wine grapes. Today, with the help of a highly insightful team, David Arthur continues to cultivate rich concentrated wine grapes that in turn help them craft distinctive and memorable wines.

Chardonnay is now the anomaly, as David Arthur has sourced their Chardonnay grapes from the Oak Knoll District and Stagecoach Vineyard in Napa Valley for nearly a decade, and cherish their relationships with these independent growers that offer small parcels and unique clonal selections. The David Arthur Chardonnay style offers a wonderful balance of new world fruit expression and restrained winemaking technique.

A pale straw color with light golden green hues opens for aromas of baked apple, pineapple and guava. Following are hints of citrus blossom, toasted oak and lemon custard. The palate is rich, and long throughout with a subtle minerality. The finish demonstrates verve and persistence of stone fruit and pineapple pear. Best from 2012 to 2017.

become well-respected in the industry. Each and every year, in our travels up to wine country, the Auteur wines stun us with their complexity, purity and intensity. These are ultra-boutique wines that garner praise from critics, retailers and restaurateurs. Hyde vineyard is sustainably and organically farmed with respect for the environment, and the quality of the fruit from this vineyard would make it one of the “Grand Crus” of California!

ROBERT PARKER 92 POINTS - "Auteur is a small, high-quality winery founded in 2003 by Kenneth Juhasz. The 2012 offerings appear to be the finest wines Auteur has yet made. Moreover, their new packaging is a major upgrade in aesthetics.

"As did all of these Chardonnays, the 2012 Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard had its malolactic fermentation blocked. Similar to a grand cru Chablis, it offers up notes of nectarines, tangerine oil, mango and pineapple, a honeyed character, fabulous intensity and medium to full body. It, too, saw 25% new French oak and was aged 16 months in barrel. It was produced from the Chardonnay Musqué clone which provides exotic characteristics. Drink now-2020."

Auteur has yet made. Moreover, their new packaging is a major upgrade in aesthetics.

"The outstanding 2012 Chardonnay Sonoma Coast was made from the Old Wente clone, with malolactic fermentation completely blocked, and only 25% new French oak used. Made in a Chablis-like style, it possesses lots of citrus and green apple notes, medium to full body, and wonderful freshness, delineation, acidity and intensity. Those who complain that California Chardonnays are too buttery or oaky will love what Auteur has accomplished with this cuvée. Drink it over the next 4-5 years."

in frame on the palate that is more slender than past cuvees in this slot. While I think “crisp” is probably a fair description, what I really sense is a beautiful balancing act between the rich texture that is built into the wine from a full malolactic fermentation, and the exuberance that is built into the wine from its own natural grape acidity. Mouthwatering flavors on the entry glide into a pleasant, gossamer finish. Great with an array of foods, especially fish and salads."
BABCOCK 13 CH TOP CREAM
$44.95

Notes from Bryan Babcock: "Thirty years ago, my mom and dad planted the first vineyard on the 15 acre bench in the middle of our ranch. Its top soil is a 2 to 3 foot deep, Read More...
grayish brown, gravelly loam that offers life to its vines on top of an ominously impervious layer of sandstone. It is a lean top soil in terms of fertility, and it definitely governs the vigor and morphology of the vines that grow in it. It is this layer of soil that I refer to as this vineyard's Top Cream. As a terroir it is ideal for growing the kind of Chardonnay that spreads its wings when put through a full-blown Burgundian style of winemaking. It is especially appropriate if one considers that the facets of a Burgundian style - the barrels, the malolactic fermentation, and the lees contact - synergize for the rendering of a Chardonnay that often smells and tastes, among other things, creamy. The trick to it all is to have the right Chardonnay grapes to begin with, and the trick to having the right grapes is to have the right soil. Indeed, the trick is in having the right TOP CREAM."

"The presence of diatomaceous sandy loam from the heart of the Sta. Rita Hills in this year's Top Cream is just uncanny. My recommendation is to be patient and give the wine at least another 6 months in the bottle so that its tapioca pudding and mineral nose can fully meld with its succulent, creamy flavor. The only downside is that if you love it then, it will probably be gone. Answer, build some into a case. It's a good one!"
