Winemaker's Notes

Chardonnay is a chameleon – readily taking on the character of its growing site and winemaking technique. Cloaked in the cool coastal fog that rolls over the vineyards each evening, Chardonnay grown in the Russian River Valley retains a lively acidity and crispness as it ripens slowly in the cool climate. We love the vibrant, perfumed aromatics and fresh, bright fruit flavors.

Critical Acclaim

"Vivid yellow. Intense, smoke- and honey-accented aromas and flavors of tangerine and peach, with a floral overtone. Rich and fleshy, with good heft and breadth. A smooth, opulent chardonnay that finishes with good cling and length."
