Wine Review: This bright straw colored Chardonnay is impressive. It opens with a fragrant lemon and oak like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced, round and creamy. The flavor profile is a tasty oak influenced green apple with notes of vanilla custard and baking spice. I also detected a hint of pineapple. The finish is dry and its flavors show very nice length. I would pair this yummy Chardonnay with Chicken St. Timothy. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Seductive, slightly floral aromas of creamy golden apple and honeydew melon, with complementary scents of creme brulee, yeast and mineral, preface a lush, full-bodied palate offering intense and expansive melon, peach and apple flavors accentuated by fresh, perfectly balanced acidity. The wine's long, elegant and focused finish showcases bright, apple-y flavors with hints of citrus, mineral and oak spice. This delicious and complex Carneros Napa Valley chardonnay is eminently enjoyable now, but it will gain further complexity with another 5-7 years aging.
