Winemaker's Notes

"A strong line-up of Chardonnays from globe-trotting winemaker/proprietor Jim Clendenen includes the 2001 Chardonnay Talley-Rincon Vineyards. Offering aromas of orange rinds, hazelnut oil, and lemon zest, this medium-bodied, explosively rich effort possesses a light straw color, fine texture, and a long, heady, pure finish with good grip. Consume it over the next 5-6 years."
-Wine Advocate
