Pratt Vineyard,
Vine Hill Road
Chardonnay

Sonoma Coast

A Head Turner

Most everyone knows that Jim Pratt is a grower we truly admire, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that when the opportunity for a little Chardonnay from Vine Hill presented itself, it was a run, don’t walk situation. On the edge of Green Valley near Forestville in the Laguna Hills region, legendary vintner neighbors all around this vineyard are just one clue that something very special is happening here.

Tasting Notes

“This Chardonnay has all the exuberance of the Russian River appellation – powerful and seductive in texture with the perfect backbone of acidity.  I love the flinty notes you get in the nose and thread of minerality that carries through layers of yellow stone fruit and hints of toast that persist through a lengthy finish”
