    Honeysuckle and honeydew flavors are evident from the start, well-centered and marked by lively acidity and a citrusy, grapefruitlike texture. Long and clean on the finish. Drink now. 225 cases made. -JL

    The 2014 Chardonnay Gap's Crown Vineyard from the Sonoma Coast comes from a high-elevation hillside vineyard that has become quite popular with many top producers. This is a relatively limited cuvee of only 225 cases. It went through full malolactic, was fermented with native yeast, and was aged in 30% new French oak. More tangerine oil, orange blossom and citrus are present in this crisp, medium to full-bodied, not complex, fleshy Chardonnay. It displays slightly more elevated notes of rocky minerality in the flavors, but it is impressive and should drink nicely for 4-5 years.

California is the heartland of wine production in the US, and the state that brought prestige to American wine thanks to the pioneers who built early wineries like Staglin, Beringer, Ridge, Mayacamas and Chateau Montelena in the 1800s. Its large geographic area ensures a great diversity in growing sites, varieties grown, and quality levels. Generalizations about the state's wines have numerous exceptions; however, a few key facts generally hold true—ample sunshine, dry weather during the growing season, and moderate winters prevail. Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon continue to dominate the state's production—albeit in continually smaller percentages, as growers continue to diversify. More than 100 different varieties can be found throughout the state.
