Wine Review: This big California Chardonnay is a throwback. It is a medium golden yellow color, with golden apple, banana, vanilla and wet slate on the nose. It is full bodied, round and creamy, with a lush mouthfeel and medium acidity. Flavors of apple, limestone and vanilla oak, with some prominent alcohol. The finish is long and tangy. I would pair this Chard with a classic herb roasted chicken with lemon and garlic. – Mark

Winemaker Notes: Our 2017 Chardonnay offers aromas of fresh cut Fuji and Honeycrisp apples with notes of flint and a slight essence of vanilla drawn from the French oak barrels. The flavors of fresh apple with a hint of minerality carry through to a rounded mouthfeel and fresh vibrancy.

Organic status: not organic
