Winemaker's Notes:

This Carpe Diem wine is made from Chardonnay clones chosen for their dynamic flavor profile, cluster and berry size. On the nose, there is a bright bouquet of citrus evolving into flavors of pear, honey and apple notes. This steely Chardonnay has a creamy texture, which is completed by a long rich finish. The wine is refined and elegant and has an aging potential that will develop slowly.

About Carpe Diem:

Carpe Diem produces wines from two great winemaking regions in California.

Wine from Napa Valley:
Carpe Diem launched its Napa Cabernet Sauvignon with the 2005 vintage, vinified under the strict supervision of Christian Moueix's winemaking team in Yountville, California. Carpe Diem Cabernet is made in a classic winemaking style and embodies the essence of Napa Valley classic Cabernet Sauvignon.

Wines from Anderson Valley:
Vinified under the meticulous supervision of Domaine Anderson's Winemaker Jerry Murray, Carpe Diem's philosophy is to offer the best of two worlds: the richness of California fruit and the elegance of a French wine.

Starting with the 2010 vintage and moving forward, Carpe Diem Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are made in Northern California's Anderson Valley. This region has gained the reputation over the years to be an ideal terroir to grow Pinot Noir and Chardonnay for still wines. Not far from the Mendocino Coast and the Pacific Ocean, this fog-shrouded region provides ideal growing conditions for these delicate grapes.
