Ten months of aging in French oak barrels on the lees develops rounder, creamier texture in the wine. The 2006 Russian River Valley Chardonnay begins with aromas highlighted by fresh melon, apple and vanilla. The wine's superior structure and balance have a backbone of crisp apple, melon and creamy vanilla flavors that continue flawlessly on to a ripe and elegant finish.
A succulent dish of fresh lobster tails with
a rich butter sauce would be an excellent match for our Chardonnay.
