The Chardonnay from Peters vineyard, a cold-climate location just south of Sepastopol, is often not harvested until late October. The long, cool season leads to classic Sonoma Coast Chardonnays that are crisp yet rich with almost sweet-feeling white stone fruits redolent of cinnamon and nutmeg spice. I rate the 2008 vintage of this wine a couple of steps behind the superb 2007 in depth and length, but it is still a wonderful and fairly-priced Chardonnay. - HK 2011-09-22
