Heritage 4-Pack 2021
Chardonnay & Pinot Noir will always be our heritage. It was with great care that Lester & Linda Schwartz tested a range of clones that would thrive on the wild Sonoma Coast.
2018 "FRV" Chardonnay
92 Points - Wine Advocate
The 2018 Chardonnay Estate has a restrained nose of baker's yeast, Bosc pears, hay and acacia with a nutty undercurrent. The medium-bodied palate is savory with opposing tanginess and a refreshing finish.
2018 Mother of Pearl Chardonnay
94 Points - Wine Enthusiast
Dark gold in color, with a buttery creaminess, this wine is richly delicious in pear, baked lemon and a mix of baking and Asian spice. Oyster-shell-like texture adds minerality and a taste of the vineyard, so close as it is to the ocean. - Virginie Boone, August 2021.
★★★★+ EXCELLENT - Restaurant Wine, Ronn Wiegand MS/MW
The 2018 Mother of Pearl is a full bodied, crisp, complex wine with rich fruitiness of pineapple, candied lemon, and honey with toast, vanilla, and oak characters. It has good balance and a lingering finish. Still quite young; warrants another year or so of bottle aging. White Burgundy-like in style. Excellent.
2018 Bicentennial Pinot Noir
Medium ruby in color, our 2018 Bicentennial Pinot Noir evolves from the glass with floral and slight savory notes of red roses, dried orange peel, and Darjeeling tea, over a core of pomegranate, raspberry and cranberry aromas. The medium-bodied palate is layered with red fruits including, wild strawberries and red plums complemented by a hint of baking spices and rhubarb, framed by finely constructed elegant tannins then completed with a lingering finish. 234 cases produced.
2017 Top of Land Pinot Noir
93 Points - Wine Advocate
The 2017 Pinot Noir Estate Top of Land takes its time to unfurl to cranberries and blackberries with nuances of black tea, woodsmoke, dusty earth and amaro. The medium-bodied palate is spicy and nuanced with a grainy frame and long, uplifted finish
