2017 FRV Chardonnay

Light and layered, this light, crisp white offers flavors of spicy pear, citrus and marshmallow, a ying-yang complementary palate of subtle richness and complexity. White flowers permeate aromatically as a persistence of lemon and tangerine hit the finish — Virginie Boone

2017 Mother of Pearl Chardonnay

Winemaker Jeff Pisoni works magic in this crisp, floral and stony white from the Fort Ross Vineyard estate in view of the Pacific Ocean. Melon, apricot and pear flavors present strongly around hints of white tea and jasmine, the texture elegantly layered and composed.  — Virginie Boone

93 Points - Wine Enthusiast
From a selection of Calera grapes grown on the extreme coast, this wine offers spice, wax and edgy acidity. Pomegranate, tangerine, cherry and mint flavors follow along a structured, complex and lengthy palate of balanced tannin and oak, finishing in lasting earthiness. — Virginie Boone

94 Points - Wine Advocate, Robert Parker
The 2017 Pinot Noir Estate Stagecoach Road has slowly opening aromas of roasted cranberries and blackberries accented by potpourri, Earl Grey tea leaves, dusty earth, woodsmoke and cola. The palate is medium-bodied, silky and nuanced with loads of spicy, bitters-like accents and great freshness, finishing long and layered.
