Wine Spectator:

"Bright and tangy, with grapefruit and soursop in the flavor mix of this delicate style, lingering on the finish with refinement. Drink now through 2019. 153 cases made" Harvey Steiman

Wine Enthusiast:

"Tightly wound and sculpted fruit anchors an appealing Chardonnay with ample influence from barrel aging. In this excellent, fruitforward vintage, plenty of weight characterizes the core apple flavors, which are wrapped in a lush coating of toast, butter pecan and nougat. — P.G. "

Product Description:

"Carabella Vineyard is on the southeast slope of Parrett Mountain in the Chehalem Mountains AVA. The vines are planted at an ideal altitude between 500 to 600 feet. Gravelly volcanic soils—Nekia, Saum and Jory, have proven perfect for dry farming the low yielding vines. Winemaker Mike Hallock had all of this in mind when he planted the first 49 acres of Carabella in 1996. He brought his 25 years of experience as a geologist to bear on choosing this site, a process that spanned a dozen years." Winery
