Winemaker's Notes:

The 2009 Chardonnay, Sonoma County is fruit forward with a rich and opulent mouthfeel. On the nose, aromas of apple, pear and citrus, commingle with hints of toasted nuts and crème brûlée. There is a lovely balance of creamy vanilla oak notes and crisp acidity on the palate, and into the lingering finish.

Richard continually explores the diversity of Sonoma County, working with mostly the same grape growers he began cultivating in 1974, as Winemaster at Chateau St. Jean Winery. Arrowood is known for making small lots of benchmark Cabernet Sauvignons, Chardonnays, Merlot, Viognier and Syrahs, among other varietals.
