2015 Ram’s Gate Durell Vineyard Sonoma Coast Chardonnay

14.5% alc., pH 3.30, TA 0.61, 643 cases, $74. · Moderate golden yellow color in the glass. Wowzer! Stately aromas of lemon-lime, flint, spice and marzipan, opening over time in a seductive progression. Captivating vibrancy with impeccable barrel integration and overall harmony. Bracing flavors of lemon-lime and golden apple play off subtle accents of butter and vanilla. Slightly creamy in texture, with a sustaining finish of uncommon length. Easy to find superlatives for this beauty. Score: 95. Reviewed March 17, 2018
