Winemaker's Notes:

The 2009 Mayacamas Chardonnay shows banana, lychee, and lemon on the nose in the bouquet. On the palate, you get white Figs, white peach, pear, and crisp apple. The very subtle French Oak treatment is in the background, and the acidity is bright. This Chardonnay will round out in the mid-palate around 2015.

About Mayacamas Vineyards:

Mayacamas Vineyards is a wine estate located in the Mayacamas Mountains that divide the Napa and Sonoma valleys. The winery was built in 1889 by John Henry Fisher. The estate was renamed Mayacamas Vineyards in 1941.

Robert and Elinor Travers, Californians both, bought Mayacamas Vineyards in 1968. Bob Travers has created wines of classical, balanced, intense, and deeply authentic character for the more than four decades hence. The roster of former winemakers, assistants, and viticulturalists at Mayacamas runs deep, and today Bob Travers and his son, Chris Travers, continue to specialize in Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay, with small lots of similarly classically structured Merlot, Pinot Noir, and Sauvignon Blanc also produced.
