Charles Ranch Vineyard
The 2018 Charles Ranch is young, energetic, and fresh upon release. With time, this wine will evolve and reveal its underlying notes for years to come. Hailing from under two miles from the cool Pacific Ocean, these old pre-phylloxera hillside chardonnay plantings offer incredible density, concentration, and finesse.
Notes of white flowers, lemon zest, lime blossom, crushed gravel, just-ripe stone fruit, honeydew melon, and tart lychee make up the core. Fine yet focused acidity balances the rich mid-palate giving way to a long-lasting finish.
