2013 Ferren Chardonnay Silver Eagle Vineyard Sonoma Coast - 95 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo 250"A wine of depth and power, the 2013 Chardonnay Silver Eagle Vineyard races across the palate with notable intensity. This is a gorgeous Chardonnay that manages to be both vivid and ample. Underlying saline notes give a sense of proportion and keep the wine from being too blowsy. The Silver Eagle is also characterized by a slight note of reduction that is quite common in white Burgundy. In my view, the reductive elements are well balanced and add character here, but they may not be every reader's cup of tea in Sonoma Chardonnay. In my book, though, the Silver Eagle is fabulous. - Antonio Galloni"

2014 Ferren Chardonnay Silver Eagle Vineyard Sonoma Coast - 95 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"The 2014 Chardonnay Silver Eagle Vineyard is flat out gorgeous. Ample, unctuous and inviting, the 2014 offers exceptional depth, silkiness and nuance. Apricot jam, honey, honeysuckle, orange peel and baked apple all flesh out in the glass. The interplay of rich, textured fruit and bright aromatics is compelling. The 2014 is a bold, opulent wine from Matt Courtney and yet it retains remarkable balance.”

Ferren Chardonnay Silver Eagle Vineyard Sonoma Coast - Chardonnay's Bright Future - WS

winespectator"Chardonnay's Bright Future.
Vintners explore new directions for California's signature white wine.

For the past decade, Chardonnay has followed a similar path as its Burgundy companion Pinot Noir, with a focus on cooler-climate sites and a more distinctive sense of place. Newcomers such as Ferren and reboots such as Arista typify this trend. Former Marcassin winemaker Matt Courtney is overseeing the style for both wineries, producing a handful of single-vineyard bottlings at each estate, including the Ferren Chardonnay Sonoma Coast Silver Eagle Vineyard 2013 (94, $75) and Arista Chardonnay Russian River Valley Ritchie Vineyard 2013 (94, $60)."
