Winemaker's Notes

This 2006 Russian River Chardonnay is bursting with aromas of golden delicious apple, honeysuckle and pineapple. The wine exhibits rich, creamy flavors of lemon custard, butterscotch and hints of nutmeg in the mouth followed by citrus zest and notes of hazelnut. This generous offering will pair nicely with rich, creamy cheeses, salads with citrus fruits and sumptuous shellfish dishes.

"This clean and refreshing Chardonnay has plump, pear-like flavors. They knit beautifully with teh acidity and wood, the structure giving the wine shape without dominating it. The generous texture and hint of smoke in the finish make this rich enough for lobster." 92 Points

This is a beautiful chard. Just down right smooth and elegant. A nice chard to take along for a romantic dinner out or just enjoy for a sunset.
