La Pommeraie Chardonnay
Martaella Pinot Noir
2018 Benovia La Pommeraie Chardonnay: This vineyard is located in Laguna Ridge near Green Valley and is managed by the Martinelli famiy. Aromas of lemon meringue, apple blossom and candied limes dominate the bouquet. Within this high-toned Chardonnay are concentrated yellow citrus fruits, orange peel and melon melded together with a touch of crème anglaise within a core of fresh acidity. Winemaker Mike Sullivan continues to excel in crafting single vineyard Chardonnay.
2018 Benovia Martaella Pinot Noir: This vineyard is part of the Benovia’s estate property in Russian River Valley. The deep ruby tint opens to a bouquet of fresh spicy plums and forest floor. Within the broad core are notes of wild blackberry and Morello cherries nicely intertwined with hints of clove and cardamom. This seamlessly textured Pinot Noir has an abundance of freshness and a lot of appeal. Although, it is destined to have a long life.
