Martinelli Charles Ranch Sonoma Coast Chardonnay 2012 750 ml
94 Points Robert Parker- The three 2012 Chardonnays demonstrate the vintage’s opulence and full-bodied exuberance and richness. From older vines planted in 1982, the 2012 Chardonnay Charles Ranch spent time in 58% new French oak. Gorgeous notes of honeysuckle, white peach, caramelized pear and orange blossoms are followed by a full-bodied, complex, intense Chardonnay that should drink well for 5-7 years. One of the oldest and most historically significant vineyard owners and wine producers in Northern California is the large Martinelli family that cultivates over 350 acres. Moreover, they have been farming grapes since the late 1800s! Remarkably, 90% or more of their entire production is sold off to other wineries as the production of their Martinelli wines tends to be small, ranging from fewer than 100 cases of the Three Sisters Chardonnay, to 500-600+ cases for the Biondi Home Ranch Pinot Noir and Moonshine Ranch Pinot Noir. The point is, these cuvées, are made from the crème de la crème of their vineyards. The 2012s are all gorgeous wines.
