Russell Bevan is a Titan among Napa winemakers, and his incredible single vineyard reds from ‘Grand Cru’ sites including the Tench, Beckstoffer Dr. Crane and Sugarloaf Mountain Vineyards are among the Valley’s greatest. For those in the know it gets even more exciting with his ultra-rare Sonoma bottlings. These wines show the remarkable breadth of Russell’s talent, and why the far western reaches of Sonoma are home to some of the most exciting Chardonnays in the World.
The Sonoma Coast Chardonnay 2019 comes from two vineyards heavily influenced by the cooling Pacific breezes and the vital band of ‘Goldridge Series’ soils that sets the very best sites apart. It’s a wine of drive and energy, with the classic citrus vibes of this AVA.
Russell Bevan: “Our 2019 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay is a great contrast to the Ritchie Vineyard. It has energy and a lively core, with a freshness that begs for oysters or crab Fresh orange and a hint of passion fruit give this wine just a touch of exoticness… this is a wine that we will be sipping on our patio all summer long.”
