Wine Review: This light yellow colored Chardonnay is very good. It opens with a light lemon bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced, and nicely coats your mouth. The flavor profile is a tasty green apple with notes of nicely integrated minerality and faint vanilla oak. I also detected hints of Anjou pear. The finish is dry and its flavors drift away nicely. I would pair this tasty Chard with roast chicken. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The stunning year of 2013 produced some of the best quality fruit we have had the pleasure to work with at the winery. Our estate vineyard in Carneros is composed of seven different clones that produce beautifully complex aromas and flavors. The wine opens with aromas of fresh apples, pineapple and pear coupled with soft vanilla and toast. The palate is met with flavors of tropical fruit, lemon curd and fresh citrus. The mouthfeel is full and integrated with vibrancy and life, perfect for enjoying on its own or paired with poultry, seafood and pastas.
