Posted on Jun 17, 2019

We're excited to share the latest Jeb Dunnuck reviews on our Chardonnays, scored June 14, 2019. Congrats to Erica on this fantastic review!

93pts 2017 Trombetta Family Wines Chardonnay Indindoli Vineyard $45
"Coming from a site in the Russian River and fermented and aged in 25% new oak, the 2017 Chardonnay Indindoli Vineyard is closer in style to the Gap's Crown release and has beautiful lemon curd, crushed rocks, white flowers, and a touch of brioche-like aromas and flavors. Rich, medium to full-bodied, with good acidity and terrific balance, this is a beautiful, complete, layered Chardonnay that's going to evolve nicely for 4-6 years."  – Jeb Dunnuck

92pts 2017 Trombetta Family Wines Four Brothers Vineyard Chardonnay Sonoma Mountain $50
"The 2017 Chardonnay Four Brothers Vineyard comes from a site in the Sonoma Mountains and is a mix of Wente, Mt. Eden, and Calera clones brought up in 20-30% new French oak. Its slightly richer gold color is followed by a ripe, sexy nose of Caramelized orchard fruits, melon, crème brûlée, and toasted bread. It's rich, fleshy, and opulent on the palate, with plenty of heft, good acidity, and a clean finish. It's a more classic California Chardonnay that has plenty of ripe fruits, some integrated oak, and tons of character. Drink it over the coming 2-5 years." – Jeb Dunnuck

92pts 2017 Trombetta Family Wines Gap's Crown Vineyard $60
"Starting with the 2017 Chardonnay Gap's Crown Vineyard, which comes from a cool site in the Petaluma Gap, it was aged nine months in 25% new French oak. This light gold colored effort offers up a classic Chardonnay nose of orchard fruits, Meyer lemons, and citrus blossom as well as a touch of background oak. It's medium-bodied, has good acidity, a balanced, layered texture, and a great finish. It's one classy, classic cool-climate Chardonnay that has plenty of richness and depth. It should keep for at least 2-5 years."
