International Wine Cellar | Rating: 88Pale, green-tinged gold. Precise aromas of citrus zest, honeysuckle, white pepper and pear skin. Lively and tactile, with good intensity to the fresh citrus fruit and floral flavors. The nicely persistent finish features bitter lemon zest and herb notes.Author: Josh RaynoldsIssue: May/June 2012
Intense, balanced, and distinctive wines are produced from this sustainably farmed estate, now owned by Bill Foley. The Chalk Hill AVA, located between Russian River and Alexander Valley, is at a higher elevation than both valleys, with leaner soils. Here, winemaker Lisa Bishop Forbes uses a minimalist approach in crafting Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, and red blends that have been benchmarks of the appellation for three decades.
