The 2019 CIX is simply ethereal. It opens with a bouquet of white orchard fruits, apple blossom, honeycomb, and jasmine tea interspersed with soil born hints of talc and white soils. The palate is dense and satiny with a brilliant sense of purity and transparency only found at this distinguished vineyard site. The wine profile is precise and the balance impeccable with incredible length on the finish. Cellar this wine with confidence for 10 to 15 years. The wine is slightly hazy showing our commitment to minimal intervention winemaking.

A barrel sample, the 2019 Chardonnay CIX Estate comes bounding out of the glass with grapefruit, green mango and orange peel notes backed up by wafts of talc, chopped nuts and a lifted, aromatic, floral perfume. It is full-bodied and intensely flavored in the mouth with a lively backbone cutting through the taut, dense citrus and tropical fruit flavors, finishing long and fragrant.

The 2019 Chardonnay CIX Vineyard is powerful, explosive and also very phenolic in feel. There is real density in the CIX. Lemon oil, marzipan, white flowers, ripe pear and mint are all beautifully delineated. The CIX is deep but also wonderfully transparent. The cool growing season yielded a Chardonnay of remarkable finesse. This site, planted with Montrachet Clone Chardonnay, was the last to be picked.
