Wilfred Wong of Wine.com, 90 points: "One of California's best defined Chardonnays, the lively 2014 Flowers Sonoma Coast deftly combines the best elements of the Sonoma Coast AVA and is a really delicious wine. This one calls for sweet Dungeness with a side of clarified butter. Medium straw color; alluring aromas of ripe apples and dried peaches, and of course that subtle kiss of oak; medium bodied, and smoothly textured on the palate; dry, medium acidity, well balanced; fanciful flavors of dried peach skin, sweet oak and bright mineral; medium finish, generous aftertaste."
About Flowers Vineyards:
Perched on top of soaring coastal ridges that border the Pacific Ocean, Flowers’ estate vineyards were some of the first planted on the “extreme” Sonoma Coast in 1991. Flowers’ vineyards rise up just two miles from the rugged Pacific Ocean cliffs at elevations of 1,150 to 1,875 feet. The maritime breezes and coastal fog cool the vineyards during the heat of summer allowing fruit to fully mature with fresh, complex flavors and lively acidity resulting in wines with a distinct coastal minerality and bright natural acidity.
