2018 Pfendler Vineyards Chardonnay Petaluma Gap

The 2018 Chardonnay Petaluma Gap is a ripe, pretty opulent release from the cooler Petaluma Gap that offers lots of pineapple and Meyer lemon fruit notes as well as green almonds, toasted bread, and honeysuckle. These carry over to the palate, where it's medium to full-bodied, has some background oak, racy acidity, and a great finish. It's a little rough around the edges, but I suspect it will come together nicely with 6-12 months of bottle age.

2018 Pfendler Vineyards Pinot Noir Petaluma Gap

Also impressive, the 2018 Pinot Noir Petaluma Gap offers a beautiful perfume of vivid red berry fruits as well as plenty of spice, floral, and crushed stone-like nuances. This medium-bodied, elegant Pinot Noir has terrific overall balance, nicely integrated acidity, and again, lots of minerality on the finish. It's going to age gracefully for 7-8 years, if not for over a decade.
