2014 Lucia Soberanes Vineyard Chardonnay $65


2014 Lucia Soberanes Vineyard Chardonnay $65

Winery Tasting Notes:  “Wines from the Soberanes Vineyard tend to have a very focused aromatic profile, and the 2014 Lucia Chardonnay, Soberanes Vineyard follows suit. The wine starts with a greenish-gold color and possesses energetic aromatics that seem to leap from the glass. Vibrant citrus and floral notes weave around a subtle core of crushed stones and Anjou pear. The rocky soil of the Soberanes Vineyard gives this wine minerality and texture unique to this stony site. Select vines from the 2014 vintage were fermented à Foudre (in a large oval oak cask), which adds depth and focus. The palate unfolds into a seemingly endless plateau of texture that expands into a beautiful and crisp finish. Enjoy now or cellar for 10 years or more.”

Staff Review:  JANA KOSMATA – The Pisoni’s clan is hands down one of Carpe Vino Staffs favorite wine making family, whether it is Pinot Noir, Syrah or the Chardonnay we have selected for this month’s wine club, they never disappoint!  Only 185 cases produced, so you are the big winner this month to be getting this coveted bottle of juice in your club!  The 2014 Chardonnay is easy to love right from the popping of the cork to the last drop and is great with any light summer faire you might be preparing or just enjoy by itself out by the pool or lake.
