Wine Spectator Extols Kanzler Vineyards 2013 Russian River Valley Chardonnay

Wine Spectator included Kanzler Vineyards inaugural 2013 RRV Chardonnay in “Nine Charming California Chardonnays” from Wine Spectator Online’s Sept. 14 issue. From the article, “Alex Kanzler, son of founders Stephen and Lynda, used grapes from the 12-acre Lolita Ranch vineyard, planted by the Martinelli family on a steeply sloped hillside in the cool Green Valley appellation of the Russian River Valley.” “Its pithy character is an indication of the high level of phenolics in the wine, a mark of the vintage. Fans of their Pinot Noirs rejoice!”

Said winemaker Alex Kanzler, “I’ve long wanted to make a Chardonnay that takes the best attributes of both California and French Chardonnays and weaves them together into a harmonious whole.” “This wine is a good example. It’s fruit forward and full-bodied while still being crisp, lively and refreshing.”
