Whole-cluster pressed directly into concrete egg fermenters (25%) and French oak, 1/3 new, for about 10 months of aging, the '12 offers diverse aromatics of almond paste, Gravenstein apple, brioche and a Meursault-like nuttiness. The leanest of this offering's Chardonnays, the Keefer palate comes alive with enervated acidity, a leesy quality in the background and a broad finish.

Vinous Failla Keefer Ranch Russian River Chardonnay 2012 (750ML) "The generosity of 2012 comes through in the Chardonnay Keefer Ranch. Layered and expressive in the glass, the 2012 is beautifully generous and resonant from start to finish. The Keefer stands out for the way it balances a typically Russian River expression of overt fruit with lovely underlying energy..

Wine SpectatorPure and focused, with a supple core of green apple, lemony citrus, spice, creamy oak and vanilla notes. Ends long and lingering, with a juicy core of fruit. Drink now through 2020.
