    Winemaker Notes

    Tropical notes, bright citrus acidity, dried pineapple, soft oak nuances, 100% barrel and 100% malolactic fermentation -- these are all factors that contribute to a well-balanced wine that will develop with rich lushness over the coming year. This wine straddles the line between oaky and buttery Chardonnay, with a touch of minerality.

    Try it with olive oil poached halibut over apricot almond pilaf or tarragon chicken salad on buttery brioche.

    Known for elegant wines that combine power and finesse, Carneros is set in the rolling hills that straddle the southernmost parts of both Sonoma and Napa counties. The cooling winds from the abutting San Pablo Bay, combined with lots of midday California sunshine, create an ideal environment for producing wines with a perfect balance of crisp acidity and well-ripened fruit.

    This cooler pocket of California lends itself to growing Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah. Carneros is an important source of sparkling wines made in the style of Champagne as well.

    One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
