PRODUCT OVERVIEW:

Meyer Family Cellars is a family owned and operated premier Mendocino County vintner. Specializing in Old-Vine Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Chardonnay.

At once a leading artisanal winery in one of California’s emerging viticultural areas, Meyer Family Cellars blends establishing this new Appellation with the legacy of Silver Oak Cellars.

One of the state’s iconic wine brands, Meyer Family Cellars occupies a unique place in the story of California wine. It was established in 1987 by Silver Oak founders and former owners Justin and Bonny Meyer, who dreamt of a family wine brand that drew upon their extensive experience in the Napa and Alexander Valleys. Incorporated in the plan too was their son, Matt, a well-traveled student of wine and graduate of the enology and viticulture program at the University of California Davis.

Donnelly Creek vineyard was planted in 1991. As the name suggests, it is planted at the confluence of the Donnelly and Anderson Creeks, on the creeks’ banks, in rocky soils, just outside of Boonville in the Anderson Valley. Its position allows it to take advantage of the marine-influenced cool temperatures at night, low lying morning fog and long, even growing days.

The 2016 Donnelly Creek Vineyard Chardonnay possesses a ripe peach quality, with notes of melon, citrus, and honey. On the palate the wine is perfectly balanced as the upfront acidity carries the wine from open to close. Aged in 25% new French oak, notes of clove, cinnamon and toasted bread carry the mid-palate. The extended time this wine has spent on lees gives this wine complexity and richness while still retaining plenty of charm and elegance.

PRODUCT REVIEWS:
WINE ENTHUSIAST: Rated 92 Points Editor's Choice
"Medium bodied and very generous in flavor, this is a big but well-balanced and well-crafted wine that's suitable for a special occasion. It exudes vanilla, cream and toasted baguette aromas and follows with rich pear, hazelnut and fig flavors and a good lingering finish."- Jim Gordon
