2008 Chardonnay Beauregard Ranch
Ben Lomond Mountain
French and American oak
The wine displays a very reserved nature that blends apples, stone fruits of peach, pear and nectarine, vanilla oil spiced with cinnamon, nutmeg and cardamom.
The Beauregard Ranch vineyard is located in the heart of the Ben Lomond Mountain (Bonny Doon) and sits at an elevation of 700 to 1850 feet on a southwest facing slope. Monterey Bay marine influences combine with sandy loam soil to produce wines with minerality and striking acidity. Plantings: Four acres Pinot noir, clones of Pommard, 667 & 115. One acre Chardonnay, clone 4. Three acres Zinfandel, clone Primitivo. Four acres Cabernet Sauvignon, Dijon clone.
Only 24 cases produced. Aged 30 months
