2013 Cougar Ridge Chardonnay
The Cougar Ridge stands out among our Chardonnays for its unusual blend of fruit and marine characteristics (an ode to the uplifted sea beds found throughout Sonoma's high country vineyards), exhibiting aromas of grilled pineapple, lemon custard and saline. The palate is exquisitely fruit-driven with an oyster shell element that extends through a lengthy finish — a complex powerhouse that speaks to site and sunshine alike.
