2017 Mirror Sonoma Coast Chardonnay

$45

Brilliant platinum color of the 2017 Mirror Chardonnay is matched by the brightness of its aromas: fresh orange peel and pineapple deepening to savory peach and coconut. A crisp touch to the tongue, with pleasing tropical accents rounding
out the mid-palate. Its lengthy and focused finish evidences the late-ripening Chardonnay grapes, and their long-hanging life on the vine in cool-climate Petaluma Gap.

Chardonnay

As one of the most popular grapes for growing and consuming, Chardonnay can be made in a wide range of styles. These styles can vary from a sparkling Blanc de Blanc, or fresh fermented in stainless steel, to rich and creamy white wine aged in oak barrels. Notable regions for this grape include Chablis or Burgundy in France, Central Coast, Napa, and Sonoma in CA, and Western Australia.

When pairing with food, consider the characteristics of your wine first. No brainer pairing options include seafood, salads, and white meat. Chardonnay, with its vast versatility, is everyone’s best friend.

Napa Valley, California

Napa Valley, where Cabernet Sauvignon is “King.”  The valley itself in Northern California is not very big, but it is home to some of the most expensive and prestigious vineyards in California. Napa is separated from Sonoma and Central Coast by two sets mountain ranges: the Mayacamas Mountains to the west and the Vaca Mountains to the east. Being in a valley, this region can heat up pretty quickly. However, there are cooling influences like fog and ocean breezes from the San Pablo Bay that help to moderate the temperature within the valley. With more heat comes more concentrated, fuller-bodied wines, making this the perfect place for Cabernet Sauvignon. Other primary red grapes of focus are Zinfandel, Merlot, Syrah, and Cabernet Franc. The principal white varieties to look for here are Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. You may also find Pinot Noir in the more southerly area of Los Carneros AVA where it can get cool enough to produce high-quality Pinot Noir. Featured AVA’s include Howell Mountain, Calistoga, St. Helena, Mount Veeder, Los Carneros, Stags Leap District, Oakville, and Rutherford. 

Mirror was founded by former Seattle Seahawks quarterback Rick Mirer. He always had a love for wine and was lucky enough to partner with famous Napa Valley winemaker Kirk Venge in 2008. The Mirror Napa Valley story begins with their two original cabernet vineyards in St Helena. These two sources of cabernet literally “mirror” each other across the Napa Valley. The western half is just above Highway 29 and the eastern half is perched above the Silverado Trail. Today they are producing top of the line Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon.
