2018 "Ma Jolie" Chardonnay
Peake Ranch Vineyard, JD96, WA95
"Another new wine in the lineup, the 2018 Chardonnay Ma Jolie Peake Ranch Vineyard is from a vineyard in the Sta. Rita Hills and was aged 16 months in 50% new French oak. Beautiful white peach and orchard fruit as well as plenty of crushed stone, iodine, and toasted bread notes emerge from the glass. It's another rich, full-bodied effort with good acidity, a deep, layered mid-palate, and a blockbuster of a finish. Drink this beauty over the coming 5-7 years."
