Winemaker's Notes:

The 2006 Chardonnay combines fruit from around the Columbia Valley. Blending allows Three Rivers to grab unique nuances from around their growing region and bring them together in one exemplary wine.

Pineapple and cardamom aromas lead to more tropical flavors. Gentle stirring of the lees, oak barrel aging for 10 months and malolactic fermentation all contribute to the round mouthfeel and smooth finish.

"Beautifully silky and refined, with lively acidity to keep the plush grapefruit-accented pineapple, spice and cream flavors zippy, finishing harmoniously. Drink now through 2012."
