While Pinot is the rising star of Carneros, the region first earned its name for Chardonnays characterized by rich apple, pear and pineapple flavors and crisp acidity. Harvested from our estate vineyrads, this Chardonnay is beautifully balanced. Tropical fruit flavors are integrated with almond and spicy oak nuances. Flavors of ripe yellow apples open up to coconut, pineapple and banana with a lingering nutty finish.
Wine Enthusiast(From 1997 Vintage) You'll find hints of apple character as well as oak and butter. The mouth is big, rich and creamy, with long lasting flavors and balanced acids.
