Fantastic value in Chardonnay, from Oregon or anywhere else for that matter. Excellent freshness and texture, opening with fresh citrus, anise, and mineral then bursting with lime and white peach through the finish. Entirely from the old vine Four Winds vineyard, mostly Wente clone with a little Dijon clone Chardonnay. Just 169 cases made.

It's like biting into a Key lime pie, then grabbing a piece of white peach. Throw in subtle shades of slate and herbs and yum, I can't wait to pair this with fresh halibut. Made entirely from Four Winds Vineyard. - Marcus

If you want to taste the future of Oregon Chardonnay, this is it. Fantastic texture and weight, mouthwatering acidity, opening with kaffir lime and transitioning to this incredible lemon-bar with graham cracker crust thing. So awesome! I want to drink it for breakfast.
This is a single vineyard Chardonnay (Four Winds) that, alongside Cameron's and Arterberry Maresh's Dundee Hills bottlings, serves as the flagship for value in Oregon Chardonnay. . - Marcus
