Notes of strawberry and tart pie cherry are accompanied by notes of sweet vanillin, toasted hazelnut and coffee as an introduction to this joyfully juicy blend of rich fruit and earthy spice. The wine opens to a well integrated mid-palate of dark berries, toffee and cassis.  The broad palate is elevated and brightened with a mouthwatering acidity that welcomes this wine to the table.  Sassafras, herbal notes and baking spices are revealed in the satisfying finish.

The key to the wine is the bright acidity that ties everything together. This is a great example of what top Russian River Chardonnay sites can produce when wine making is focused on balance.

This 2018 Bacigalupi Chardonnay has a nose of citrus and peach blossoms. The palate opens with fresh White peach and Meyer lemon with brioche toast on the finish. We aged the wine in Boutes cooperage for 11 months with 40% new barrels. Bacigalupi probably has the most classic Russian River profile of all Flanagan's Chardonnays. They believe in letting each site express itself. That means that each of their wines has a barrel program and wine chemistry unique to that vineyard site in a given vintage. This is terrific wine from one of Sonoma County’s top Chardonnay sites and will age gracefully for many years.

The nose shows notes of Rangpur lime, jasmine, and a hint of vanilla. On the palate, the wine has Bosc pear and toasted almond. The wine has bright acidity and an elegant minerality. The wine was aged in 100% French oak barrels, using Atelier Centre France and Boutes cooperage for 11 months with 50% new barrels.

This is a stunning example of an AVA wine made from the top vineyards in Sonoma County.

With only 239 cases produced, the 2017 Russian River Valley Ritchie Vineyard Chardonnay may just be the best Chardonnay produced to date. Being the second Chardonnay vintage that Phillip Corallo-Titus worked on with Ralph, there’s more acidity and balance than in previous vintages. Robert Parker’s Erin Brooks described this vintage as having a “softly, savory character” and a “long, juicy finish”. Jeb Dunnuck mentions that this wine reminds him of an old Meursault: “it’s full-bodied, ripe, and opulent, yet has good acidity.” This is a delicious wine that showcases more sophisticated restraint than previous vintages while carrying the typical elegant style you’ve grown to love. Be sure to chill it down until the lions change color, and then you’ll know you’re at the proper serving temperature!
