Winemaker's Notes

Our appellation release of chardonnay exemplifies all the verve and personality of the 2006 vintage. An opalescent pale straw hue carries an expressive nose that sings with heady aromas of white flowers, honeysuckle and citrus oil, preparing the senses for a palate creamy in texture and bursting with flavors of tropical fruit and custard. A touch of citrus refreshes on the finish.

"The 2006 Chardonnay Russian River offers abundant amounts of hazelnut and tropical fruits in an elegant, medium-bodied style. Drink this beauty over the next 2-3 years."
