(From 2008 Vintage) Lean and minerally, this Chard offers lime and white peach flavors that finish bone dry and clean. It's not a rich wine, but it is very elegant, with a good scour of bracing acidity.
(From 2010 Vintage) Chardonnay's favored position among wine drinkers is well established. Our 2010 Chardonnay is fresh and lively yet pleasantly round with a gorgeously complex nose and a surprisingly lengthy finish. Think lemon chiffon pie: citrusy and bright yet a bit toasty and creamy. Vineyards in Napa Valley's cool southern end are at the heart of this wine's exquisite execution. Wine is made in the vineyard is a phrase heard often around here. Our 2010 vintage illustrates this fact very well. The utilization of whole-cluster pressing, barrel fermentation and sur lie aging are among the traditional steps employed to create this crowd-pleasing stylish wine.
