The 2014 brick & mortar Cougar Rock Vineyard Chardonnay expresses intense citrus aromas of Meyer lemon zest and green apple, as well as crushed stone. The palate is alluring; a racy, elegant body with concentrated minerality and a lingering acidity driven by clonal selection and the granitic soils in the Eastern hills of Napa Valley. This is a Chardonnay with great depth while being light on its feet, and is expected to age gracefully for the next 12-15 years.

Wine EnthusiastThis is a tremendously, remarkably and memorably bright and tangy wine, floral on the nose and delicious on the palate. Blood orange, lithe minerality and sparks of lemon and lime highlight the experience, the grapes grown on Atlas Peak.

Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Chardonnay Cougar Rock has impressive minerality. This 100% barrel-fermented wine offers good white peach, lemon and caramelized citrus in a medium to full-bodied, refreshing style. The alcohol is surprisingly low at 13% but the minerality is off the charts.
