Wine Review: This luscious, single vineyard Sonoma Chardonnay is medium golden yellow color, with attractive aromas of creme brulee, honeysuckle, Bosc pear, wet stone, toasted oak, and lemon peel. A round and slightly creamy mouthfeel on the palate, it is dry, medium-plus bodied, layered, and well-balanced, with crisp moderate acidity, and nicely managed oak. There are flavors of green apple, creme brulee, honeydew melon, crushed stone, and buttered brioche toast. The finish is dry, refreshing and lasts quite a while. Pair this Chardonnay with classic lobster thermidor. - Mark

Winemaker Notes: The 2021 vintage features showy floral aromas with orange blossom and toasty oak. Floral tones and toffee flavors fill the mouth, complemented by a creamy yet light mouthfeel. The finish has a pleasantly light touch of acidity with a lasting note of golden honey. Enjoy this Chardonnay with a variety of salty cheeses, vegetable ravioli, grilled pork chops or creamy soups.
