Wine Description

(From 2013 Vintage) Made exclusively using grapes from our own acclaimed Carneros estate vineyard, which we have been farming for more than four decades, this is a vivid and alluring Chardonnay, with layered aromas of baked apple, orange blossom, pear, butterscotch and brioche. On the palate, bright, mouthwatering acidity and wet stone minerality add poise and precision to flavors of nectarine and Anjou pear, all of which are underscored by oak-inspired hints of caramel and baking spice.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2012 Vintage) The warmer climate of 2012 produced truly spectacular Chardonnay fruit from our Carneros vineyard. The resulting wine is pale gold in color and opens with aromas of fresh apple, brioche, pear and pineapple. It is full bodied and displays flavors of tropical fruit, citrus and vanilla. The mouthfeel is silky, yet vibrant and has a long, lingering finish. It is a perfect accompaniment to poultry, seafood or for sipping on its own.
