Robert Parker Awards a Pair of 93 Point Reviews to 2011 Joseph Phelps Sonoma Coast Chardonnays

We are pleased to announce in issue #210 of The Wine Advocate, Robert Parker has awarded 93 points to the 2011 Joseph Phelps Chardonnay, Freestone Vineyards and 2011 Joseph Phelps Chardonnay, Pastorale Vineyard.

2011 Joseph Phelps Chardonnay, Freestone Vineyards - 93 points
"It offers a steely minerality as well as abundant white currant, quince and citrus oil characteristics, medium body, wonderful intensity, and a complete, satisfying testure and mouthfeel."

2011 Joseph Phelps Chardonnay, Pastorale Vineyard - 93 points
"This Corton-Charlemagne-like white wine reveals lots of wet stone, citrus oil, white peach and apple blossom notes with the wood component well-concealed, a rich, medium to full-bodied style, and a nicely layered finish that builds incrementally."

Congratulations to our Sonoma Coast winemaking and vineyard teams!
