MacMurray Ranch

This year's Sonoma Coast Chardonnay has a rich mouthfeel with sweet aromatics. Restrained oak contact brings caramel and vanilla flavors, but the emphasis is on elegant ripe fruit with tropical and lemon cream notes.

Wine Advocate

Even better is the outstanding 2009 Chardonnay Sonoma Coast, a blend of two-thirds barrel fermented and barrel aged with some aged in stainless steel tanks with wooden staves and the rest totally in stainless steel, all of which was put through malolactic fermentation. The idea of blending steel fermented juice with barrel fermented wines seems to have produced a freshness and vibrancy. Bright with notes of orange blossoms, spring flowers, honeysuckle and white peaches, this floral-styled, medium to full-bodied effort will please those looking for Chardonnays with less than 14% alcohol (this offering has 13.8%). Enjoy it over the next 1-2 years.

Score: 90. —Robert Parker, February 2011.
