Winemaker's Notes

The color of this wine is bright straw yellow. Luscious aromas of lime, orange peel, apricot, mango, honeysuckle and lemon zest jumps out of the glass. Hints of thyme and cardamom as well as custard and caramel notes make this wine very attractive. Exotic tropical fruit flavor expands on the palate and a vivid citrus essence lingers long. Delightful acidity and minerality add structure while sweet oak nuances such as vanilla and caramel add suppleness to the wine. This Chardonnay clearly shows the wonderful potential of our Carneros region.

Critical Acclaim

"A beautifully elegant, refined Chardonnay. Because it's not overloaded with oak, it displays the basic finesse of the grapes from this cool-climate vineyard. Crisp and dry, it's rich and complex in citrus, tropical fruit, peach, mineral and honeysuckle flavors, at a fair price."
