Winemaker's Notes:

The 2006 PlumpJack Reserve Chardonnay continues our tradition of creating fruit driven wine that captures the essence of the Chardonnay grape. Primary aromas of baked pear, apple and banana with secondary aromas of spearmint, lemon zest and white peaches are followed on the palate with flavors of Fuji apple, pear, lemondrop and a touch of vanilla custard . The most forward of our recent Chardonnay releases however the natural acidity will allow 2-4 years of bottle age

About PlumpJack Winery:

PlumpJack Winery sits squarely in the heart of Napa Valley's renowned Oakville region, surrounded by a 42-acre estate vineyard highly-regarded for the quality of its Cabernet Sauvignon. Both their winery building and their vineyard date back to the 1800s, when winemaking pioneers first took advantage of a unique position on the valley floor. The east side of their vineyard lies along the foothills of the Vaca mountain range and yields grapes with the kind of bold fruit character that comes from well-drained hillside soils. To the west, their estate lies in the Napa River flood zone. Here, their vines take root in rich, deep clay soild, for grapes with softer, more supple varietal character. From their oldest, rockiest section - the "I" Block, where they source their Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve - to more recent plantings, they strive to maintain balanced vines.
