Winemaker Notes

Luminous gold with glimmers of pale green, the 2014 Wayfarer Chardonnay booms with aromas of Meyer lemon, apricot blossom and heirloom apple, echoed by notes of lemongrass, honeysuckle and butterscotch. Generous flavors of sun-warmed white peach and crushed almond extend long and wide on the palate with a stunning underscore of wet stone minerality. The mouthfeel offers both intricacy and wholeness, it is soft and succulent, yet focused with sublime acidity. A stunning wine to enjoy in its youth, it will age beautifully for another 10–15 years.


#2 Wine Enthusiast Top 100 of 2016


98 points Wine Enthusiast

This is yet another stunning wine from this site, guided by the capable hands of Winemaker and Viticulturalist Bibiana González Rave, who has coaxed from it beguiling layers of complex concentration and sublime notions of tang and salt. The only white from a sea of Pinot Noir grown here, it speaks to what the extreme Sonoma Coast can bring to the variety—a celebration of lemon zest, crisp apple and brioche delicately wrapped in minerality.


93 points Wine Spectator

Showcases creamy tangerine- and nectarine-driven flavors, with lively acidity and a pithy citrus skin texture. The elements push through effortlessly, gaining depth and nuance along the way. Drink now. 800 cases made.


93 points James Suckling

A very pretty and delicious white with sliced apple, honey, and hints of flan and lemon curd. A beautiful length and intensity to this.


92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2014 Chardonnay Wayfarer Vineyard sings of butterscotch, ripe apricots, orange blossoms and toasted almonds with suggestions of lemon peel and grapefruit essence. Medium to full-bodied, it fills the palate with generous stone fruit and toasty flavor layers, defined by a racy line of acid and finishing with epic length.
