Robbie Meyer and Alan Peirson met while they were both working at the esteemed Peter Michael Winery.  Alan was the estate manager there and Robbie was the winemaker.  They are now producing some amazing wines under their own labels, including Peirson Meyer.  These are hand-crafted, small production wines from outstanding vineyard sites that are bursting with complexity and depth of personality.  In our opinion their Sophia’s Vineyard is the best Chardonnay being poured in the state. Super-small production and the highest rated Chardonnay of the year, discover this up-and-coming Sonoma Coast superstar while its still available! One of the our all time favorite small-production, high end Chardonnays.

Tasting Notes:

This elegant, multi-layered Chardonnay has pitch perfect balance and texture. Intertwined in the palate are sweet spice, white nectarine, brioche, orange oil, green apple, and a classic river stone minerality. The mouthfeel has an amazing polish, presence, and viscosity that finishes perfectly focused, leaving a persistent impression on the palate. 300 cases produced
