Crack the knuckles and limber up those fingers to tap on through to checkout and score this tropical, rich yet minerally, beautifully balanced Sonoma Coast Chardonnay from artisan producer, Eric Kent, at 50% off retail. Yup, 50%!! (And yes, same Eric Kent from our Pinot offer a few weeks ago that sold out in a jiffy.)

You may recall that Eric Kent is a tiny producer of Pinots, Chards and a bit of Sauv Blanc and Syrah, only cranking out about 3500 cases total per year. Owner Kent Humphrey is a self-proclaimed and very enthusiastic wine geek, who for several years (like many of us smitten with this grape juice elixir) spent most of his disposable income on wine and wrote copious amounts of tasting notes on every bottle he purchased. It’s a love of the craft that he’s since transferred into the production of wine, from farming to finessing the juice in the cellar. 

Let us start by saying that this wine drinks way above its price point (especially your lean and mean $22!!). A classically styled cool-climate Chardonnay with a perfect balance of oak influence, the wine has weighty richness, but delivers a fresh, fruit-forward palate with zing-tastic acidity. Like wowzers. Notes of pineapple, green apple, lime zest and Meyer lemon are coupled with hints of tarragon, wet stones and warm spice on the finish. If you love Meursault, Vire-Clesse, and just darn-good Chardonnay, you gotta have it!

Only 238 cases produced and we have but a handful in our warehouse. You will have serious FOMO if you don’t snag your 4 bottles with shipping included (only $88!). Good luck!

TASTING NOTES 

Notes of pineapple, green apple, lime zest and Meyer lemon are coupled with hints of tarragon, wet stones and warm spice on the finish. Balanced oak influence with a weighty richness, and a fresh, fruit-forward palate with vibrant acidity.

THE STORY TO KNOW

Kent Humphrey is a self proclaimed “hyper-enthusiastic” wine geek since college (writing volumes of tasting notes and spending all of his disposable income on wine), it wasn’t until age 33 that Eric worked his first harvest. He had a single goal in mind: to someday hold up a bottle of world-class wine and say to himself, “I made this.”

"Today I’m fascinated to discover that my goal is never-ending… the pursuit of making fine wine goes on forever. Each vintage brings new challenges and triumphs, more discoveries and deeper desires. Palates evolve, knowledge grows, new vineyards beckon, ideas flow. It’s really about the journey after all." -Kent Humphrey
