Review: 2015 Don & Sons Chardonnay Sonoma Valley Watmaugh Ranch


The Don in question here is the famous Don Sebastiani, and this is his (and his family’s) first wine under this new label.

A classic Sonoma chardonnay, the Don & Sons Chardonnay offers a hefty nose of oak and brown butter, with plenty of vanilla. On the palate, the fruit becomes more evident, though the apple and lemon is filtered through notes of walnuts, baking spice, and ginger — the lattermost which lingers considerably on the finish. Bold in body, this wine pulls no punches en route to its huge finish, bold with fruit and vanilla, and classically California all the way.
