Wine Review: This yellow colored Chard was well received by our mini group of tasters. It opens with a banana bouquet with a hint of lemon. On the palate, this wine is full bodied and viscous. There was a touch of elevated acidity detected as well. The flavor profile is a slightly tart green apple with a touch of unripe pineapple and mild oak. The finish is dry, is a bit tingly, and shows some nice length. We thought it would pair well with chicken cordon bleu. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Reflecting the bright character and cool-climate structure of a classic Russian River Valley winegrowing season, our premiere release of Migration Chardonnay offers an array of white flower, honeydew, apricot, white peach, pie crust and lemon custard aromatics. On the palate, stone fruit and custard layers are underscored by excellent acidity and subtle oak, creating a harmonious wine that accentuates the purity and charm of its fruit.
