92 Pts Stephen Tanzer - Vinous Media
(14.9% alcohol; from a cool Beckstoffer Vineyard just north of San Pablo Bay): Pale, green-tinged yellow. Delicate white peach, lemon drop and white flowers on the nose. Then densely-packed-verging-in-thick, but with very good definition and lift to the flavors of pineapple, lemon and white peach. Sound, ripe acidity, near-15% alcohol and a slightly tannic impression give the wine a bit of youthful harshness but also the structure to repay a couple years of cellaring.
"If Cabernet Sauvignon is the King of Californian reds, then Chardonnay is the Queen of Californian whites. REBEL REBEL is rooted in being a cool climate wine that brings traditional Napa Chardonnay into the modern era. There is a raciness, a tang, and a twang about the wine, along with sufficient minerality to be more than just interesting.
"The wine is sourced from the Beckstoffer vineyards that are situated in the Los Carneros region around the Pablo Bay area just north of San Francisco. The fog breezes that come up from the bay make for the cooler climate. This, mixed with a predominately clay terroir encourages the vines to retain moisture. The cooler climate imparts an increased zippiness to the wine.
"The grapes are hand-picked and sorted (allowing the removal of all damaged or sunburnt grapes while at the same time respecting the quality of the fruit) and transferred as whole bunches into a pneumatic press. The juice is chilled to preserve the fresh-fruit flavours, before being vinified at under 14Â°C in a continuation of that policy. Oak is used sparingly so as to not overwhelm the fresh, mineral and fruit vibrancy." - Winery
