"A touch spritzy and raw-textured, this is intense and restrained, with the focus on edgy pear, apple and melon flavors. More solid than special on the finish. Drink now through 2022. 581 cases made. -JL" (WS)

"The 2015 Chardonnay Woolsey Road Vineyard has a wonderfully sexy nose of exotic spices, honeycomb and pear tart with suggestions of jasmine, brioche and nutmeg. Full-bodied, rich and seductive in the mouth, it has a compelling oiliness to the texture and loads of spicy accents, finishing with fantastic length and depth." (WA)

"The 2015 Chardonnay Woolsey Road Vineyard is another highlight in this range. Rich, textured and ample on the palate, the Woolsey Road is striking in its beauty. I would give the 2015 another year or two in bottle to come into its own. Today, the Woolsey Road is distinctly oily and viscous, with tons of personality, but it is also tightly wound and in need of time." (VM)

"From a site just south of River Road, behind Martinelli on a north facing slope, the 2015 Chardonnay Woolsey Road Vineyard is another rich, intense, full-bodied Chardonnay offering loads of tangerine oil, spice, and honeysuckle. It has bright acidity and a clean vibe, but packs beautiful fruit." (JD)

"This is a Martinelli family-farmed site, a mark of excellence and history that's hard to beat. Floral and textured, it is marked by bright focused acidity around a core of textured baked-apple flavor and hazelnut crème brûlée. It tastes complete and complex, with undeniable richness and concentration." (WE)

Winery Notes:
“Coming from special vineyard sites, our Chardonnays show great depth of flavor, length of finish, aromatic complexity, and a fine balance between richness and delicacy. Typically, the climate is cool and the soil vigor low, producing graceful yet vibrant wines. This is our first bottling from this new site.” –David Ramey
