Winemaker's Notes:

Fragrant and intense Carneros fruit flavors are interwoven with creamy notes to create a luscious, inviting Chardonnay. Deep and concentrated, this wine exhibits judicious use of oak that adds to the flavor array, building toward a long, luxurious finish.

Aroma: Delicious aromas of pear, apple and fig, enhanced by spice and vanilla notes. Flavors: Balanced, lively flavor palate of Asian pear, apple, and rich fig, followed by cream and honey. Finish: The fruit-driven finish rewards with clove, spice and fresh cream. Rich and multi-faceted; a vibrant, enticing finish that leaves you wanting more.
