Winemaker's Notes

"The 2005 Chardonnay Napa reveals a light gold/green color along with scents of nectarines, quince, orange marmalade, brioche, and a leesy element. It possesses terrific acidity, not quite the complexity or mouthfeel of the Sonoma Coast offering, but a big, bold, smoky style that demands consumption over the next 5-6 years."
Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate
92 Points

"Harmonious, smooth and creamy, with delicate fig, vanilla, melon and spice, gaining complexity and length and ending with a touch of anise and cedary oak. Drink now through 2010."

It is the key source for their Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Chardonnay. Jayson's passion eventually led him to the Sonoma Coast, where less than seven miles and two ridges from the Pacific Ocean, he planted Wayfarer Farm, their key source for Pinot Noir.

The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...
