Wine Review: This medium yellow colored Chardonnay opens with a pear and banana bouquet with hints of coconut and vanilla custard. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced and round. The flavor profile is a banana crème pie with note of oak, vanilla, and spice. I also detected some hints of coconut flakes and pear. The finish is dry, and its flavors and acidity linger and last for quite a while. I would pair this Chard with chicken cordon bleu. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Our 2019 Carneros Chardonnay is full of vibrancy and grace, exhibiting citrus aromas with fresh lemon, white floral blossom, pineapple, lychee, and delicate hints of vanilla crème. On the palate there are layers of creamy lemon curd, candied lemon peel, crisp green apple, white pear, and a touch of white pepper spice. The oak shows nuances of graham cracker crust and is a pleasing backdrop supporting the core of zingy crisp acidity and fruit underpinning the overall round and textured complexity of the wine. The wine finishes long, dry, clean, and refreshing. Viognier added a bit of floral and texture.
