Far Mountain Myrna Chardonnay Sonoma Valley 2019
Far Mountain is based on the belief that some of the greatest potential for wine in California – and anywhere in the world – exists in remote pockets in the mountains of the Sonoma Valley." "Myrna combines Bald Mountain’s delicate floral and exotic fruit notes with salty, lime and green fruit-inflected notes from Thornton Vineyard. It is a defined and powerful structure with layers of spice persisting through the finish. Organically farmed.
VM94: The 2019 Chardonnay Myrna shows just how compelling the vintage is for white wines. Lemon oil, white flowers, chalk and mint give the 2019 a brilliant upper register that almost comes as a surprise once the wine shows its superb depth and persistence. This highly expressive, nuanced Chardonnay has a lot going on and plenty to offer.
JS94: A polished, minerally chardonnay with sliced apple, lemon rind and some stone and flint. Laurel and other herbs, too. It’s medium-to full-bodied with a creamy texture and balance. Phenolic texture. Lively and stony.
