Winemaker's Notes

The grapes for our Napa Valley Chardonnay always come from Napa Valleys best Chardonnay micro-climates: the southernmost section of the Valley, and the Carneros region, cool-climate areas famed for the world-class quality of their Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The wine has a generous aroma of citrus, ripe pear, green apples, and a mineral component with a subtle hint of oak. In the background, those same characteristics are prominent in its flavors.
