Recently tasted, this 2020 is the perfect balance of the best of what Chardonnay has to offer. It is “elegantly complex and perfumed with layers of white currant, yuzu lemon and fresh pear. Dry yet elegant it has plenty of complexity that unveils itself with each sip in the glass. It is a wine of great balance and harmony, with gentle silky texture sustained by powerful structure and finishes with a hint of spice and caramel." Rincon Vineyard is owned by Talley Farms and has produced some of the best wines to ever come out of the Arroyo Grande Valley. Paul’s section is located on the West side of Rincon and was planted in 1999.The Robert Young clone grows in Salinas Loam, a relatively dark soil that creates a Chardonnay with minerality, depth and weight on the palate. Paul Lato began with the 2002 vintage after Paul decided to follow his dream to make wine in California's Central Coast and made six barrels of wine. By chance he met Robert Parker who said, "I hear you are this sommelier who makes wine. I want to taste it." Paul sheepishly told him he had only three barrels of Pinot Noir and three barrels of Syrah. Parker said, "You are starting with the hardest grapes to vinify. But don't worry about it. I'm a wine taster and I taste everything. But, if it’s shit, I'm going to tell you." Today, Paul is making approximately 2000 cases of wine that both consumers and critics love. 150 cases were produced.
