 2014 Fort Ross 'Fort Ross Vineyard' Chardonnay Fort Ross-Seaview

The way we see it, you could pay $75 for a bottle of village Chassagne-Montrachet, or you could buy this gorgeous indulgence for $40. Parker says this is "a beauty. It shows notes of crushed wet rock, crisp orange blossom, white currant and discrete oak. Some poached pear also makes an impression in this unfined and unfiltered Chardonnay that should drink nicely for 5 to 7 years."

Sonoma Coast doesn't get any more coastal than Fort Ross. Their vineyard perch above Highway 1 is only a mile from the water. They're one of the founding members of the new "Fort Ross-Seaview" appellation which recognizes the unique influence of the Pacfic on (mostly) Burgundian varietals. It's what has been referred to for many years as the "true" Sonoma Coast; the district officially streches so far inland as to make the maritime influence basically irrelevant. From the cliffs above the fog layer, the fortunate vines of Fort Ross are able to bask in brilliant sunshine by day and be rocked to sleep at night by soothing ocean breezes. Happy grapes make for some awfully tasty wine, as you'll discover here.
