Wine Review: This light yellow colored Chardonnay opens with an attractive mild lemon, gentle new oak and butter bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced, smooth and soft. The flavor profile is a very tasty Bosc pear and oak blend with notes of golden delicious apple. I also detected hints of caramel towards the end. The finish is dry and its flavors linger for a very long time. This Chard would pair very nicely with pasta carbonara. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Inviting aromas of pear, lemongrass, ripe peach, jasmine and graham cracker rise from the glass, revealing this wine's layered complexity. On the palate, a silky texture creates weight and volume, with elegant acidity framing the stone fruit and citrus flavors. The finish is long and fresh, with tantalizing hints of lemon zest, vanilla and clove.
