Mission Briefing

Codename:

Raising the roof

We’ve always had a thing for the wines of Schug Carneros Estate. Today’s Schug Carneros Estate 2012 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay only reinforces our love.

Today’s wine is a shining example of just how well Walter Schug and his winemaking team understand Sonoma Coast Chardonnay. This wine expresses a great deal of fruit and complexity. In the right hands, Sonoma Coast Chardonnay should be this expressive, but it almost always falls short of its potential. This is where Walter’s decades of experience come in.

Enjoy this wine with a wide array of food pairings. We’ll be enjoying our bottles with our wintertime celebrations!

Taste:

Enjoy this wine as an aperitif, with a plate of fruit and assorted cheeses. For a meal pairing, enjoy with crab legs, a roast chicken or nearly any grilled or poached fish.
