Wine Details

Wine Description

(2012 Vintage) Ideal for sharing with friends as a chill returns to the air, this wine is richly textured with a lovely creamy richness and bright acidity that leads to a long, flavorful, crisp finish. Note those favorite fall flavors such as peach, caramel and baked apple. Complex aromas of Golden Delicious Apple, white peach, and nectarine are accented with nougat, honeydew, and brown sugar. Flavors of peach, apple, and crème brûlée ​meld with hints of butterscotch, caramel, warm pie crust, and baked apple with a light touch of vanilla and oak spice.

    (2006 Vintage) You can feel and taste the cool weather during this vintage in the citrusy acids, steely minerals and sleek, streamlined flavors of Meyer lemons and nectarines. Barrel fermentation adds needed richness. Good price for a dry, sophisticated Chardonnay.
