The Pearl is in the River - 2009 LIOCO Sonoma County Chardonnay has Arrived

It's here, we've been awaiting the new vintage for months now all over America. Tis' the Season to  go fill your wine coffers and load up on the new release! 

Chardonnay “Sonoma County” 09
After four successive vintages with this wine, we are finally achieving what we set out to do. Omitting fruit sources that haven’t performed and refining those that have, has left us with what may be the most “complete” So-Co to date.

The 2009 is a blend of Stuhlmuller Vineyard (Alexander Valley), Mazzera Vineyard (Dry Creek), Ricci Vineyard (Carneros), and Valentine Vineyard (Mendocino). The wine features a core of citrus (mostly lemons) and chalky minerality. Adding complexity are notes of orchard fruit and miso paste. This is drier and taughter wine that was the 2008. $20 (Distributed by Avante Beverages)

Also...the new LIOCO Indica is back in stock - oh yeah!  Cheers - Ali
