"This Private Reserve Chardonnay has rich, ripe layers of bright citrus, lemon peel, pineapple and smoky, toasty oak with sweet vanilla and butter notes. There's only one word for it: Delicious"
-Ed Sbragia, Winemaster
As in past vintages, Ed Sbragia chose to barrel ferment and age the individual vineyard lots for the 1999 Private Reserve separately, matching each vineyard lot to new French Nevers oak barrels. Ed stirred the lees weekly during ten months of aging to encourage a smoky, nutty, toasty character and he put the wine through 100 percent malolactic fermentation to add a creamy, rich mouthfeel.

This held true with the 1999 Private Reserve Chardonnay, as the blend combines the citrus and butter aromas and flavors from the Yountville-area blocks with pineapple, apple and pear from the vineyards further south and into Carneros.
