Wine Review: This light gold colored Napa Chardonnay opens with a mild Bosc pear bouquet with a hint of peach and grapefruit. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and suave. The flavor profile is a mild vanilla oak infused Bosc pear with notes of butterscotch and a hint of minerality. The finish is dry and its oak notes linger for a while after the wine is gone. The panel suggested pairing this wine with pasta carbonara. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Influenced by a cooler than average growing season, the 2010 Signature Chardonnay is powerful, sleek and vibrant, and was bottled unfiltered to maintain a strong sense of place and high concentration of flavor. Bright aromatics of white peach and quince entice, with layers of green apple, creamy lemon meringue, yeast and toasted wheat in the mid-palate, finishing with a pure, delicate minerality. A promising vintage that will evolve well for several years.
