Showing balanced depth and complexity, light straw to golden color, aromas unfold with layers of lemon, pear, apricot and wet stone minerality. This vintage shows crispness on the palate, with a lush and balanced citrus finish.
"During his tenure at Flowers, from 2000 to '08, Ross Cobb honed this chardonnay into an icon of the far coast. He blended this wine from sources in the Petaluma Gap, the Russian River Valley and a significant portion from Flowers' Camp Meeting Ridge. And though it aged for eight months in French oak (20 percent new), it tastes like eating fresh, perfectly ripe fruit, like the pink bitterness of peach near the pit or the creamy pulp of a white nectarine. Stay with it and you might find bright citrus and some green tropical fruit as well. It's balanced and composed, with the rich scent of a broth made from lobster shells-a saline, mineral character that suits it to crab."
