Winemaker's Notes:

A rich, complex and buttery wine of vivid varietal fruit aromas augmented by French oak background. The finish is rich, mouth-filling, and long on the palate. This Chardonnay works great as a stand alone or may be served with appetizers, rich sauced dishes, seafood, or poultry.
My Notes:

About Barnard Griffin Winery:

Barnard Griffin Winery was established in 1983 by Winemaker Rob Griffin and his wife, Deborah Barnard. Rob saw the opportunity to make great wine in Washington and moved north in 1977. Pleased with his move to Washington, he says "The northern latitude of Washington and the ideally drained sandy soils of the Columbia Valley make it possible to produce deeply concentrated wines of pronounced character."
