The 2005 Russian River Chardonnay begins with
abundant aromas of peach, apricot, pear, and toasted
almonds. More complex aromas of spice and hazelnut
are revealed after several minutes in the glass. On the
palate, crisp acidity from Dry Creek's cool weather vineyards
strike an excellent balance with subtle oak nuances.
The finish is long and lingering with additional
vanilla and cream elements that add even more finesse
and elegance to this beautiful wine.
