We’ve been fans of Mary and her work ever since our first inspiring studio visit. In addition to admiring the art, we were struck by her deep connection to the materials she uses and a certain feeling in her studio that said “all of this is meant to be here, honest and necessary and real.”

2005 Chardonnay
Russian River Valley

92 POINTS ~ WINE SPECTATOR

"Earthy, with ripe pineapple and citrus notes, this is more focused on the palate. Elegant and stylish, ending with a wonderfully delicate note and richer pear and melon fruit. Drink now through 2010. 250 cases made." —J.L. ...

Tasting Notes

A golden straw in color, the ‘05 vintage layers exotic spice and floral notes on top of a crisp green apple and minerality on the nose. Then the palate takes over with full flavors of honeydew melon and tangerine leading to a hint of hazelnut to round out the long finish. Bright acidity buoys the entire ensemble and keeps it lively throughout. Only in the background (where it belongs) does tight-grained French oak provide structural support that knits the entire package together. Delicious now, this Chardonnay should just get better and better over the next couple of years.
