A note from Carlo Mondavi “This bottling is dedicated to our grandmother, Marjorie who will always be a bright light of inspiration for us. Our grandmother was truly an incredible woman. Without question, her hard work, dedication, and steadfast determination led to where we are today. Our inaugural release of this chardonnay is a cuvée of the best barrels in our cellar hailing from two special sites along the westerly Sonoma Coast in Fort Ross-Seaview.”

"Pears, peaches and hints of honeysuckle. So perfumed with rocky undertones and notes of bananas and flint. Full-bodied with a freshness and depth that is impressive and extremely long and persistent. Flint and lime at the end. Salty and intense. Love to drink it now but needs a few years of bottle age."

"The 2022 Chardonnay Lady Marjorie comes from remote sites on the Sonoma Coast and takes a golden-tinged hue in the glass. It's approachable on opening with, aromas of fresh pineapple, ripe peach, orange blossom, wet stone, and honeycomb. This carries with ease to the supple palate, where the wine leans toward full-bodied, with a delicate, soft, stony texture and a clean, tapered finish. It is a very appealing wine with a wide drinking window over the next 5-6 years. The second vintage for this cuvée, it was raised in various-sized used and new barrels and concrete eggs and was unfined and unfiltered."
