With an average age of 40, the vines behind this “thrilling, brilliant Chardonnay” know how to deliver weighty, flavorful fruit. Clones and field selections are harvested and fermented individually, and only the best barrels from each lot make it into this cuvee. It’s a highly textured wine with aromas of yellow apple and honeysuckle leading toward a full, supple body. Flavors of Granny Smith apple and Meyer lemon are intertwined with building layers of spice. The finish is long, exotic, and mineral-infused.
Another Russian River release, the 2019 Chardonnay Four Hearts Vineyard brings plenty of ripe tropical fruit as well as medium to full body, a supple, layered mouthfeel, nicely integrated acidity, and building spice, toast, and green almond nuances. It's another thrilling, brilliant Chardonnay from this estate.
