2014 Joseph Phelps Freestone Vineyards Sonoma Coast Chardonnay

13.5% alc., 4,600 cases, $55. Released May 2016. Estate grown. Aged 13 months in 35% new and 65% used French oak puncheons and barrels. · Moderate golden yellow color in the glass. Very complex nose offering aromas of lemon, grapefruit, nectarine, buttery brioche, butterscotch and petrichor. Driven by brisk acidity in the mouth with flavors of lemon, yellow grapefruit and toast this wine finishes in a thirst quenching, soprano fashion. Acid lovers will celebrate this style. Score: 90.
