Protracted drought made for extremely low yields at this vineyard in a foggy valley on the west side of the Santa Cruz Mountains, just six miles from the ocean—and the result is a wine with a precise, concentrated freshness. At first, it feels like a well-balanced, typical California Chardonnay: warm, spicy fruit and biscuity richness. As it takes on air, it reveals more intensity and depth of flavor, building toward flashes of succulent peach flesh and stony peach pit, and the snappy spice of nectarine skin. Age it for a few years and you’ll have a stunning bottle of Chardonnay.
The 2015 Chardonnay La Marisma Vineyard offers plenty of Santa Cruz Mountains minerality and tension that gives the wine its shape. Dried pear, chamomile and ash are nicely delineated, but the Marisma is above all else a wine of texture. (AG)
