Tasting Notes

Ron Rubin Russian River Valley Chardonnay - 2018
Soft creamy notes of apples, pears and spices envelope the senses, with added aromas of vanilla and toasty oak. This Chardonnay is very balanced and approachable with crisp fruit flavors, hints of butter and oak.

Pam's UN•Oaked California Chardonnay - 2018
This lovely UN•Oaked Chardonnay is perfect for all gatherings. Its refreshingly fruity and light-bodied, with a beautifully transparent, pale yellow color. It has showy fruit aromas of Asian pear and Golden Delicious apple; and, ripe citrus, like key lime and tangerine. With a touch of sweet, this wine is just bursting with lingering flavors of juicy, ripe poached pears. Yet, it is fresh and crisp.

Ron Rubin Russian River Valley Chardonnay -
Cool morning fog sweeps from the Pacific Ocean over the Russian River Valley nearly every day. This unique climate produces diurnal swings ranging from 35 to 40 degrees F, allowing the delicate Chardonnay grapes to ripen longer on the vine. As a result, Russian River Valley Chardonnay typically sees an increase in flavor and complexity.

The Chardonnay grapes for this wine were hand-picked and whole-cluster pressed to retain optimum flavor and integrity of the fruit. Sourcing from our favorite vineyards allows us to showcase the bright fruit flavors while allowing for a great acidic structure.


Pam's UN•Oaked California Chardonnay -
We source our grapes for our Un•Oaked Chardonnay from family owned vineyards in Clarksburg, Lodi, and Mendocino County. These regions are well known for their sustainable ethics and Mediterranean climates. Like southern France, these regions can bring out a beautiful ripeness in the grapes, while maintaining fresh acidity.

Ron Rubin Russian River Valley Chardonnay -
2018 was a remarkable vintage for Russian River Valley Chardonnay! A fairly dry winter gave way to a wet early spring, delaying bud-break but providing ample moisture for the grapevines. Consistent and mild conditions during bloom and throughout the early growing season, along with a cooler than normal August, led to slow ripening and a late harvest date. This long hang-time allowed for full flavor development while retaining the bright acidity that is a hallmark of Russian River Valley Chardonnay. Harvested in late September and early October, the grapes were gently pressed before fermentation in oak barrels.

It was another remarkable vintage for UN•Oaked Chardonnay. A fairly dry winter gave way to a wet early spring, delaying budbreak in the vineyards but providing ample moisture for our 2018 crop. Consistent and mild conditions during bloom and throughout the early growing season, along with a cooler than normal August, led to slow ripening and a late harvest. This long hang-time allowed for full flavor development while retaining bright acidity. Harvest by late September, and fermented only in stainless steel tanks, we crafted a crisp, delicious wine that is very approachable and food friendly.
