Wine Review: This deep yellow colored Chardonnay from the Russian River Valley opens with a lemon tea and green apple bouquet with a hint of pineapple and honeydew melon. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with integrated medium acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, round and subtle. The flavor profile is a chalky minerality and Anjou pear blend with notes of light oak and almond. I also detected some hints of baking spice and faint pineapple. The finish is dry, and its flavors and acidity are nicely extended. I would pair this Chard with baked halibut with garlic-butter sauce. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: This classic Russian River Chardonnay engages the senses with delightful notes of apple and tropical fruits like melon and pineapple. The presence of French oak beautifully enhances its body and imbues an intriguing bouquet reminiscent of creme brulee, toast, and caramel. On the palate, it delivers a smooth and full experience, while the crisp acidity provides a perfect balance and lends an elegant touch to every sip.
