From a site located near the nexus of Carneros, Sonoma Valley, and the Sonoma Coast, the 2018 Chardonnay Durell is a richer, broader Chardonnay that offers loads of mulled Meyer lemons, brioche, and honeysuckle notes as well as nicely integrated oak, medium to full body, plenty of toasty, nutty nuances, and a great finish. This classic, rich, powerful Sonoma Chardonnay does everything right. It will pick up even more complexity with a year or so of bottle age and evolve gracefully for a decade.

The 2018 Chardonnay Durell Vineyard has a lush, open-knit nose of mushroom paste, charcuterie, wet hay, crushed almonds, spring blossoms and a core of ripe orchard fruits. In the mouth, it has a medium weight and silky texture and explodes with savory, honeyed flavor layers, seamlessly fresh and finishing long and uplifted. Wow!
