Winemaker's Notes:

The 2007 Gamble Ranch Chardonnay is a rich, luscious wine from the first aromas of butterscotch, citrus zest, golden delicious apple and sweet vanilla. Its ripe fruit and citrus flavors are layered with hints of baking spices and stone fruit, ending with a layered, supple finish. Its opulent flavors and balanced acidity make it a great match for rich dishes such as shrimp sautéed in garlic and butter. You can frequently find me enjoying that combination on the patio at the winery during the warm summer evenings!

About Sbragia Family Vineyards:

As the master winemaker at the famed Beringer winery in Napa for over 32 years, Ed Sbragia has made wine from every great vineyard in Northern California. Sbragia Family Vineyards is a dream Ed has had for many years, a small, family-owned winery making limited lots of wine from blocks of his favorite grapes, including his family's own Dry Creek vineyards. With his son Adam, Ed also focuses on extremely small production wines from spectacular sites, such as this 2005 Rancho Del Oso Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon.
