Wine Review: This pale yellow colored Chardonnay opens with an attractive pear bouquet with a hint of oak and On the palate, this wine is medium to full bodied, creamy and rich. The flavor profile is a mild lemon butter with nicely integrated vanilla oak. I also detected a hint of Bosc pear. The finish is dry and its flavors are nicely prolonged. I would pair this very nice traditional styled California Chardonnay with chicken cordon bleu. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Ripe and fruity wine, with tangerine and flowery orange blossom complemented by exotic pear, fig, and honeydew melon aromas and a creamy, toasty oak bouquet. Silky and mouth-filling, this is an impressive style of concentration and intense flavors of tropical fruit, peach and hazelnut that are harmonious and provide a delicious, lingering aftertaste.
