Winemaker Notes

The 2016 Silhouette Chardonnay opens with notes of flowers, orange blossom, jasmine, white peach and candied pineapple. The mouth is broad at first, elegant with a deep acidity that sustains the weight and natural sweetness of the wine. The finish exhibits the traditional minerality of our Stanly Ranch Estate Vineyard and brings freshness and balance to the wine.

WE 94
Wine Enthusiast

Dark in color, the barrel imprint comes first in this rich, rounded white, with a heady concoction of flowers, apple, peach and lemon coming next. Textured and complex, it is full bodied and voluptuous, with a complement of acidity that refreshes.

JD 93
Jeb Dunnuck
From sites in Napa Valley and aged in 50% new oak, the 2015 Chardonnay Silhouette is more layered and interesting than the base cuvee. Buttered citrus, plenty of flinty minerality, brioche and buttery notes all give way to a vibrant, nicely textured Chardonnay that has bright acidity and a clean finish. It too will keep for at least 4-5 years.
JS 92
James Suckling

Plenty of pink grapefruit on the nose, as well as vanilla, cloves, bread crust and cream. The palate shows good density with tangy fruit, driven acidity and an oily finish. Drink now.

RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Aged for 16 months in 35% new French oak, the 2016 Chardonnay Silhouette opens with tropical fruit notes of mango, guava and pineapple with touches of crème brûlée, mandarin peel and lightly browned toast. The palate is medium to full-bodied with a pleasantly oily texture and lovely freshness lifting the vivacious fruits, finishing long.
