88 Points 2015 "V" Chardonnay, Monterey
Smooth, ripe and juicy with smooth vanilla oak; mellow and balanced with ripe pear fruit and a mellow finish; long and creamy.
"This is a vibrant, pale yellow wine which glistens in the sunlight and is the quintessential summertime sipper. The first thought is refreshing after nosing this wine and discovering tropical fruits such as kiwi and casaba melon notes and a touch of linalool and blood orange notes. The palate is completely balanced in its acidity and mid palate allowing a variation of flavors to be revealed: citron lemon, key lime, Pipen apple, fig and Meyer lemon zest. It finishes with honeysuckle, mango, passion fruit and kumquat."
The M-80 firework, is extremely loud, explosive and dangerous. The same is true with our M-80 Chardonnay. We select choice Chardonnay grapes from the cool climate of Sonoma County, pick at optimal ripeness and ferment exclusively in French oak and put the wine through 100% Malo-Lactic fermentation. The wine is generous in its vanilla and buttery aromas and flavors which some may describe as extreme, explosive and dangerous.

90 Points, Wine Spectator
Ripe peach, apricot and pear flavors are rich and unctuous, with toasted spice, vanilla bean and honeysuckle accents. Crisp acidity leads to a fresh finish. Chenin Blanc, Vigonier and Roussanne. Drink now. 500 cases made.—M.W.
The appearance of this sparkling Chenin Blanc illustrates a vibrant, small bubble bead and a fine mousse over a crystal clear, pale yellow color. Aromatically, the wine is tropical with pineapple, mango and guava with a hint of marzipan and a Key lime backdrop. The palate expresses ripe peach, passion fruit and lemon verbena and finishes dry with pure Chenin citrus fruit and lively acidity.
