Review

Martinelli's 2010 Chardonnay Charles Ranch wraps around the palate with ripe passion fruit, butter, lemon oil, pastry and white flowers. Rich and voluptuous, the 2010 impresses for its overall balance. Here the slightly warm micro-climate gives the fruit an additional breadth and volume that is unusual for the Sonoma Coast but that works beautifully here. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025.
