Winemaker's Notes

"...gives this great vineyard it's due..."
-Wine Enthusiast

Classic ripe apple and pear aromas and rich fruit flavor. Secondary aromas of spice, citrus, mineral and toasted hazelnuts. A well-defined structure and long silky finish.

"The 30-year-old Cold Creek Vineyard turns out big, round, lush Chardonnays, characterized by crisp apple and citrus aromas and flavors. The warm site and low-yielding old vines produce concentrated, powerful fruit and wines with a rich mouthfeel and great aging potential."
Bob Bertheau, Winemaker
