Winemaker's Notes:

The 2008 Chardonnay is a wine of great intensity, yet with elegance and balance. On the nose peach, pears, nectarine and other stone fruit dominate with a hint of lemon zest and smoky oak giving depth and intensity. The palate is supple, lively and vibrant and leads to a long, rich finish.

About Clos Pegase:

Completed in 1987, Clos Pegase was designed to be a temple to wine on a 47 acre Calistoga vineyard. The winery has a total of 450 acres, mostly located in Carneros. The Clos Pegase label features Pegasus, painted circa 1890 by the French artist Redon. This painting is winery owner Jan Shrem's favorite work of art from his extensive private collection.
