DuMol Wester Reach Chardonnay 2016
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley|
Wine AdvocateOpening with vibrant grapefruit, lemon grass and yuzu scents, the 2016 Chardonnay Wester Reach delivers compelling nuances of honeysuckle, orange peel, crushed rocks and fresh ginger on the nose with a waft of allspice. Medium-bodied with a tantalizing suggestion of creaminess to the texture, the palate gives energetic citrus and mineral layers with a racy backbone and long, spice-laced finish.
Jeb DunnuckMoving to the Chardonnays, the 2016 Chardonnay Wester Reach comes from a site in the Russian River, yet is further west, toward the Sonoma Coast. Medium-bodied, vibrant, and elegant, with juicy acidity and notes of white flower, citrus blossom, tangerine and subtle minerality, it’s an incredibly elegant wine that builds nicely with time in the glass.
