Us: Tasting this with John Paul and having him casually say that the Abbey Ridge vines that make this wine are between 42 and 50 years-old...let me tell you, there's nothing casual about that! In fact, there's nothing like it in the Willamette Valley. And it's 25 bucks. Astonishing. But only 1/3 of the normal crop means 1/3 of the normal production so get it while you can.
Cameron (and they are right): This is the best Chardonnay in its price range on the market. Lime leaf and orange blossom aromatics with a light touch of vanilla make me think of tarte au citron! A lovely rich mouth with some tartness allows it to be both an aperitif while you’re cooking and it will go with the meal afterward, though if you drink enough while you’re cooking, this latter point will be unimportant! Consider it a gateway drug for our single vineyard chardonnays.
