Winemaker's Notes:

The 1992 vintage of this wine was ranked #5 on the Wine Spectator's Top 10 Wines of 1994

A full-bodied Chardonnay, this wine delights with aromas of apple, a hint of graham cracker, floral notes, and honey, perfectly balanced by flavors of lemon and pear on the entry and lingering, creamy marshmallow, toasted oak notes.

This versatile, full-bodied Chardonnay pairs perfectly with seafood, poultry, white meats, and dishes with cream sauces. Try preparations that include citrus, butter, cream, cheese, bacon, roasted garlic, mustard, nutmeg, thyme, basil, or toasted nuts.
