(From 2014 Vintage) This wine opens with layered aromas of fresh Meyer lemon, shortbread and ripe pear. On the palate are flavors of baked, locally grown, Gravenstein apple framed by hints of sweet spice and white peach. The end result is a broad, juicy, and beautifully balanced mouthfeel.
Aromas of green apple, citrus and clove are balanced by vanilla and caramel overtones. A rich lingering finish of ripe fig and hazelnut enhances bright pear and citrus flavors. The fruit intensity of the 1999 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay carries through from the focused aromas through the long finish.
