This particular Chardonnay is a demonstration in the art of blending. Choosing from the barrels that ultimately make up the Charles Heintz, Laughlin Family, and Russian River Valley Chardonnays, Robbie and Alan carefully selected individual barrels that would offer unique expression not necessarily shown in the individual blends that clearly represent the given vineyards. This is more an expression of what Chardonnay can offer rather than what a particular vineyard can. From the great minerality, characteristic of the best Burgundies, to the beauty of pure California fruit in the aroma, as well as a viscous mouthfeel balanced by a focused finish, this wine is a demonstration of what can be found hidden in the broader complexities of the traditional wines of L'Angevin.

Wine SpectatorCentered on a rich mix of toasty oak, pear, peach and nectarine flavors, this is intense without being weighty, presenting an enticing dash of butterscotch. Drink now. 450 cases made.

Wine AdvocateThe generic 2014 Chardonnay Russian River comes from the Old Wente clone, goes through full malolactic and is barrel-aged on it lees for 14 months in 40% new French oak. Plenty of apricot marmalade, white peach, honeysuckle and a touch of pear and pineapple are all present in this rather classic Russian River Chardonnay that is sexy, full-bodied and attractive.
