The Double L Vineyard is well situated to produce Chardonnay of the highest caliber. Located near the northern tip of the Santa Lucia Highlands AVA, the vineyard receives brisk afternoon breezes from nearby Monterey Bay. North-south vineyard row orientation allows for optimum sun exposure on the Highlands’ east - facing terraces. Wind and sun combine for a long growing season, resulting in vibrant fruit flavors with balanced acidity. The vineyard was certified organic in 2002, although it has been conscientiously farmed in this method since the original plantings in 1997.

ANTONIO GALLONI'S VINOUS MEDIA 93 POINTS - "Pale, glistening gold. A suave, expressive bouquet features fresh mango, pear, fresh fig and buttered toast, and spicy ginger and floral nuances emerge as the wine opens up. Well-concentrated and focused on the palate, the spine of juicy acidity supporting powerful tropical and orchard fruit, Meyer lemon, honeysuckle and saffron flavors. Rich but lithe as well, with strong finishing energy and floral-tinged persistence. 30% new French oak."

JEB DUNNUCK 92 POINTS - "Moving to the two 2018s, the 2018 Chardonnay Double L Vineyard is another racy, crisp, yet concentrated Chardonnay in the lineup that has loads to love. Caramelized citrus, toasted bread, honeycomb, and some orchard fruit notes give way to a medium-bodied, nicely textured, balanced Chardonnay offering bright acids and a clean, lengthy finish. Drink it over the coming 4-6 years."
