6 x 2009 Solitude Sangiacomo Vyd Carneros Chardonnay
The name Sangiacomo is legendary in Sonoma. Back in 1927, the Sangiacomo family began transforming its orchards into vineyards. Over the years, the family's plots have become the source for high-quality Merlot, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, and its long list of clients include Acacia, Rombauer and Steele.
The Dreyers, an established Sonoma winemaking family, have been producing wines for more than 30 years under the Dreyer Sonoma, Compass, Seabiscuit Ranch Il Cuore and Solitude labels. 2009 marks the 22nd vintage of Solitude made from Sangiacomo fruit.
Original founder and winemaker Richard Litsch, an assistant winemaker at Chalone before establishing Solitude in 1986, barrel-ferments the fruit in French oak and completes malolactic fermentation. The resulting wine has considerable restraint and balance, allowing the fruit to shine and lead to a fabulously long finish.
The 2009 Solitude Chardonnay is a textbook Carneros Chardonnay. Sweet oak and vanilla are well integrated with baked pineapple and ripe Anjou pear. Despite the name, this wine is best when shared with friends and paired with an array of dishes such as grilled halibut with tropical salsa, pork chops or rotisserie chicken with baked apples.
