Description

"Aromas of salted nuts, dried lemon rind, orange peel, white peach and oak show on the nose of this bottling. The toasty qualities consume the sip, where baked apple and baking spice flavors meet with prevalent wood spice." ~ Wine Enthusiast 

"gracious and ethereal in the glass. It is one of the more understated Chardonnays in this lineup. Orchard fruit, mint, flowers and white pepper lend an attractive aromatic upper register..." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous

"Rocking Meursault-like notes of toasted brioche, hazelnuts, white flowers, and ripe citrus and lemon emerge from the 2019 Chardonnay Parker West, another classic, medium-bodied, beautifully balanced Chardonnay...it’s medium-bodied, has bright acidity, and a distinct minerality on the finish. It’s a beautiful Chardonnay to drink over the coming 3-5 years or so." ~ Jeb Dunnuck

Our single vineyard and small lot releases enable us to deliver some of our finest expressions of chardonnay by concentrating on specific vineyards, clonal selections or techniques. The Parker West Vineyard is a dynamic site planted in sandy soils on a windswept hillside several miles from the cold Pacific Ocean. 

This chardonnay offers up generous notes of lemon cream, citrus, yellow peach, golden apple, toasty oak and vanilla all backed by bright, refreshing acidity.
