  • Wine Enthusiast Awards 2012 Chardonnay, Freestone Vineyards 94 points & Cellar Selection

    The September 2014 issue of Wine Enthusiast magazine features a new review from Virginie Boone our 2012 Joseph Phelps Chardonnay, Freestone Vineyards Sonoma Coast:

    94 Points & Cellar Selection
    Made from estate-grown fruit near the chilly Sonoma Coast town of Freestone, this is a fully layered wine, expertly balanced in acidity yet offering plenty of full-figured mouthfeel and viscous pleasure. It delivers an electric mix of Meyer lemon, minerals and brioche, and will please a diverse range of palates. –V.B.

    Learn more about this wine HERE. It is poured daily at both of our Guest Centers and will be featured at the upcoming West of West WOW Wine Festival Grand Tastings on August 1-3, 2013. We look forward to sharing this newly released wine with you soon.
